U.S. Customs and Border Protection Customs agents stopped some alleged drug smugglers' half-baked idea of disguising marijuana as carrots.
Customs agents intercepted the phony produce at the Pharr International Bridge cargo facility in Texas.
The smugglers reportedly tried to sneak the 2,800 orange duct tape-wrapped marijuana packages in with actual carrots, but Customs' imaging inspection system flagged the shipment for further examination.
