SALTON CITY, Calif. -- U.S. Border Patrol agents said they intercepted a large shipment of marijuana into the country at the Highway 86 checkpoint near the Salton Sea.
Agents said they made the discovery on Tuesday around 8 p.m. after a K-9 team alerted agents to a large tractor-trailer, which was undergoing its primary inspection.
They said they ordered a secondary inspection, where a large-scale imaging system scanned the truck's cargo.
Inside, they said they found several wooden crates filled with several bundles containing what appeared to be illegal drugs, which later tested positive for marijuana, they said.
Agents said they uncovered more than 1,100 bundles of marijuana, weighing about 28,300 pounds, making it the largest marijuana seizure in El Centro Sector Border Patrol’s history and one of the top checkpoint seizures nationwide.
The driver of the vehicle, a 35-year-old man, was placed under arrest and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration along with the marijuana and tractor-trailer.
