More Than A Ton Of Marijuana In Texas Load Of Limes

PROGRESO, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a load of limes in South Texas has yielded more than a ton of marijuana.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Wednesday announced the seizure of about $2.4 million worth of marijuana.

Investigators say an 18-wheeler hauling a commercial shipment of limes had a second inspection Tuesday at the Progreso International Bridge.

Officers discovered nearly 350 packages had been slipped into the shipment. Agents seized more than 2,400 pounds of marijuana.

Investigators say an unrelated bust a day earlier, in a commercial shipment of cucumbers, led to confiscation of more than 1,900 pounds of marijuana. The street value of the packaged
marijuana has been estimated at $1.9 million.

Both tractor-trailer rigs have been seized.
