In Pharr, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers picked up more than $5 million dollars in methamphetamine.
It's the largest meth load intercepted by officers to date and agents found the 340 pounds of meth hidden within the floor area of a tractor trailer with a commercial shipment of carrots. The 41 year-old driver from Tamaulipas is under arrest and facing federal drug charges.
