Border Patrol agents also made a major drug bust of more than four and half tons of marijuana at the Falfurrias checkpoint.
The marijuana was valued at more than $7 million dollars and agents made the discovery after a canine alerted them to a tractor trailer. Inside the trailer agents found around 300 bundles of marijuana and some were concealed inside cardboard boxes that had cabbage inside them.
DEA agents took the driver into custody and confiscated the trailer.
