Border Patrol Nets 800-Pound Pot Bust

Border Patrol agents near Tuscon seized more than 800 pounds of marijuana, firearms with ammunition, and arrested several U.S. citizens and foreign nationals involved in smuggling activities.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said the bulk of marijuana was seized after agents started following a suspicious Dodge Ram truck north of Amado, Ariz. After apparently realizing he was being followed, the driver accelerated, lost control and crashed. Two people fled from the vehicle and were not located. Agents searched the vehicle and found 30 bricks of marijuana.
