La Joya police have uncovered nearly a thousand pounds of marijuana.
Officials say a man stole a truck sometime overnight at a Mission home to deliver the bundles of marijuana. A police officer spotted the truck leaving a canal and tried to pull the driver over. The driver exited the truck and ran into a wooded area and got away from the officer. There were 980 pounds of marijuana in the bed of the truck and La Joya police contacted the owner of the truck.
