Two Dix Hills men have been ordered held without bail after a search warrant resulted in the seizing of $2 million worth of marijuana, according to State Police and online court records.

Troopers said they executed a search warrant at Polizzi and Snider’s home on Carlls Straight Path, and at two storage facilities on Jericho Turnpike in East Northport.

The troopers recovered more than 500 pounds of marijuana, with a street value of more than $2 million, and more than $200,000 in cash, the news release said.

They also seized several vehicles and property worth millions of dollars, the news release said.

Both men were charged with multiple counts of criminal possession of marijuana, State Police said.

An attorney who represents both defendants could not be reached for comment Thursday.
