8 tons of pot found stashed in home
Nuevo Laredo police seize over sixteen thousand pounds of marijuana. The pot was found in a safe-house located in a rural neighborhood in West Nuevo Laredo. Officials say suspicious activity and a strong odor of the drug led to the massive seizure. Three persons, two men and a woman found at the home are now under arrest. The eight tons of marijuana was found in over six hundred individual packages. The drugs and suspects have been handed over to Mexican Federal authorities.
