Agents Discover Marijuana Hidden in John Deere Tractors
EL PASO — Some suspected drug smugglers got creative last week, but it wasn't enough to fool border authorities.
Customs and Border protection officials at the Santa Teresa port of entry seizied 733-pounds of marijuana hidden inside five John Deere tractors.
A drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the drugs. The 204 marijuana bundles were concealed within the rear differential unit of each tractor. No arrests have been made -- but the investigation continues.
