Border Patrol agents busted a man from Grand Prairie, Texas for trying to smuggle in almost $150,000 dollars worth of marijuana.
Officers working the Progreso International Bridge seized more than 180 pounds of marijuana on Tuesday when a narcotics dog sniffed out the pot from a gas tank of a van. Agents found two metal boxes containing four large blocks of marijuana. A 47 year-old driver was arrested and faces federal drug charges.
