More than 41/2 tons of pot has been found in anabandoned school bus near the U.S.-Mexico border.
A Texas Department of Public Safety statement released Tuesday says a state trooper found the drugs near Laredo, on the side of U.S. 59 in Webb County, over the weekend. According to the statement, 560 marijuana bundles totaling more than 9,210 pounds were hidden under a cardboard false floor and in a secret ceiling compartment.
The DPS estimates the marijuana is worth $3.9 million retail and says the seizure is the second largest it’s made during routine traffic enforcement since 1997.
4Â½ tons of pot and that’s only the 2nd largest seizure since 1997?
