U.S. Border Patrol agents at the Fort Brown station picked up almost 352 pounds of marijuana worth more than $280,000 dollars.
On Wednesday at around 3am agents spotted a group of men carrying bundles strapped onto their backs heading north from the Rio Grande river. The men dropped the bundles and took off running and four Mexican citizens were arrested. Agents also found three rafts, oars, and two air pumps.
