More than 500 pounds of pot is seized by a Texas DPS Trooper. A DPS spokesperson says it happened after the officer pulled over a vehicle in Hidalgo County, but not before a brief chase.
51 bundles of marijuana were discovered inside the bed and cab of the truck. The 561 pounds of pot are worth over $3 million.
24-year-old Beatriz De La Garza was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and evading arrest with a motor vehicle. She was transported to the Hidalgo County Jail.
