US border agents find $1.5m worth of pot in truck

TUCSON, US: Border Patrol agents found nearly a ton of marijuana loaded into a highly-modified pickup truck west of Tucson, Arizona.

As per detail, the agents were in an area near Ajo looking for smugglers and with the help of a CBP helicopter found a 2000 Toyota Tundra with 90 bundles of marijuana, weighing a total of 1,933 pounds. The truck was hidden under a camouflage tarp.

The abandoned truck had no license plate, no registration and had been highly modified for off-road travel and for carrying heavy loads, the release said. The marijuana was turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the truck was seized.
