EDINBURG (March 12, 2013)--Border Patrol officials confiscated more than 3 tons of marijuana found hidden in an 18-wheeler that was searched at a South Texas border checkpoint.
The pot, which has a street value of almost $10 million, was found Friday at the Falfurrias checkpoint by a drug-sniffing dog that detected the marijuana hidden in the rig.
Officers recovered more than 6,700 pounds of marijuana that was hidden in the trailer.
The driver was detained.
Further details on the investigation weren't immediately released.
