U.S. Border Patrol agents stopped six tons of narcotics from heading up north.
It happened at the Falfurrias checkpoint where agents seized 119 bundles of marijuana weighing more than 11,900 pounds. A canine sniffed out the drugs which were hidden in the cargo area of a tractor trailer.
The approximate street value for the six tons of marijuana is close to $10 million dollars and the agents arrested the driver.
