Border Protection agents caught another man trying to smuggle marijuana at the Gateway International bridge.
A narcotic dog sniffed out the marijuana which was hidden inside the tires of a pickup truck. Agents found more than 92 pounds of the drug and arrested 26 year-old Hugo Olmedo Paredes. He is a Mexican citizen living in Brownsville and will now face federal drug charges.
