$1.6 Million In Pot Found In Fake Government Truck

Recommended Posts




TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — It looked like a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service truck. But the U.S. Border Patrol says it was actually the latest in a long line of creative attempts by smugglers to get illegal drugs from Mexico into the U.S.

Agents spotted the white truck with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decals along a boundary fence in Douglas, Arizona, on Monday, while responding to reports of possible drug smuggling. When agents tried to contact those inside, the vehicle suddenly stopped and two people fled into Mexico.

Agents say they found 3,200 pounds of marijuana stashed in the truck worth an estimated $1.6 million.

Smugglers have used catapults, tunnels and panga boats to get drugs across the U.S. border.
