Border Patrol Seizes 1,542 lbs. of Marijuana
Border Patrol agents stationed in Hebbronville have made a seizure of almost $1.2 million worth of narcotics. A canine officer prompted the secondary investigation of the freight-liner hauling a hopper trailer. Eighty-one bundles were discovered towards the back of the trailer. The packages tested positive for marijuana and weighed in a little over 1,500 lbs. The contraband, freight-liner, and driver were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
