1,400 Pounds Of Marijuana Found Inside Coconuts At US-Mexico Border

More than 1,400 pounds of marijuana was discovered inside coconuts at the U.S.-Mexico border. 

Border patrol agents found the drugs inside a commercial shipment at the Pharr International Bridge cargo facility near Hidalgo, Texas. 

A non-intrusive imaging inspection and canine units led them to the more than 2,400 individual packages worth over $285,000. 

Apparently, hiding drugs inside produce is a favorite for smugglers. 

Back in March, more than 700 pounds of marijuana was discovered inside a shipment of broccoli. 

And in January, more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana was packaged to look like carrots
