Marijuana found inside concrete pipes

EL PASO, Texas — Customs officers found 957 pounds of marijuana hidden in a truckload of concrete pipes.

The 1993 International tractor trailer from Mexico was X-rayed at the Bridge of the Americas on Friday. The examination revealed anomalies in the cargo that turned out to be 816 packages of the drug, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Rick Lopez told the El Paso Times.

Officers cut through the concrete pipes to find the marijuana packages encased inside.

CBP officials put the drugs value at $765,000 and said the case was still under investigation.  From Chron.com
