Border Patrol agents in Calexico, Calif. say they found 937 pounds of marijuana in an abandoned vehicle near the border after two men moved a barricade and entered the United States.
The Border Patrol tells the Imperial Valley Press that agents watched two men on camera early Tuesday as they moved a barricade and came across the border west of Calexico. The vehicle then stopped and the two men jumped out and ran back into Mexico.
Agents who went to check out the vehicle found 42 bundles of marijuana stuffed into the back of the abandoned vehicle with an estimated street value of $562,200.
Both the vehicle and marijuana were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
