Columbus, NM — Customs and Border Protection Officers made a huge drug bust at the Columbus Port of Entry over the weekend.
About 450 pounds of pot were found hidden in a truck that tried to cross the port around 9 a.m. Saturday.
A drug sniffing dog alerted officers to the pot hidden in the trailer bed and on the floor of the truck.
The driver, 23-year-old Daniel Gonzalez Acosta from Mexico, was arrested and was turned over to HSI Agents for the failed smuggling attempt.
