Agents find $1.5M in pot hidden in truck

    EAST COUNTY — U.S. Border Patrol agents at a Pine Valley checkpoint on Interstate 8 found more than $1.5 million worth of marijuana hidden behind a false wall in a big rig Sunday night.

    The nervous demeanor of the truck driver, a 55-year-old El Salvadoran man, led agents to take a closer look at the tractor-trailer, which arrived at the checkpoint about 11 p.m., Border Patrol spokeswoman Mary Beth Caston said.

    A drug-sniffing dog reacted to the trailer, and a search by agents turned up the false wall. Behind it: a little more than 1,000 pounds of pot with a street value of $1.5 million, Caston said.

    The driver and drugs were turned over to a multi-agency drug task force, and the Border Patrol seized the tractor-trailer.

    My name is Jason Jones. I'm from Rochester, MN and I'm 35 years old. I scrap metal and work as grounds keeper at a local trailer park. In the winter, I shovel a bunch of driveways and sidewalks to make some extra money and to stay busy. In my free time, I try to find interesting articles about the war on drugs that I can post on Drugs-Forum, so that the information can reach a wider audience.
