Nearly a ton of marijuana was found inside a vehicle leaving the banks of the Rio Grande river in the town of Escobares.
Border Patrol agents spotted the vehicle and followed it to an apartment complex where it was parked. Agents investigated the area around the complex and noticed a large bundle lying in the entrance of one apartment. After entering the apartment they discovered up to 253 bundles of marijuana inside the vacant apartment. No arrest were made in this case so far.
