U.S. Border Patrol Seizes 915 Pounds of Pot

DEL RIO, Texas – Enforcement activities by U. S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Sector, resulted in the seizure of 915 pounds of marijuana, with an estimated value of $732,624, over the past weekend.

On Friday evening, agents from the Eagle Pass South Station found a large stash of marijuana hidden in a 1998 Freightliner tractor-trailer. The discovery was made as agents at a highway checkpoint performed a routine immigration inspection on the driver. During the inspection, a service K-9 alerted to the exterior of the sleeper section of the vehicle. Closer inspection revealed 200 bundles of marijuana, weighing 416.56 pounds, hidden under the bed in the sleeper. The driver, a 32-year-old Eagle Pass man, vehicle, and marijuana were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
