Agents at the Gateway International bridge stopped Loida Arzola Solis and the 1997 Dodge Dakota she tried crossing after Diego, a narcotic detector dog, alerted agents during the search. Officers found 68 pounds of marijuana stuffed in a condensed air container and four torque converters stuffed in the bed of the truck.
