This Is What 3,000 Pounds Of Weed Disguised As Watermelons Looks Like
When it comes to hiding weed, cannabis enthusiasts can be quite clever. Disguising cannabis as watermelons, however, might have proven to be a bit of a stretch.
Border Patrol agents in Pharr, Texas seized 3,000 pounds worth of cannabis packaged to look like fresh watermelons. Check the video here: How successful do you think they were in disguising their weed?
According to authorities, the seizure took place on January 17 at the Pharr International Bridge cargo facility. Imaging technology and canine teams were able to identify the fake watermelon as cannabis.
The cannabis, in particular, was distributed within roughly 400 single packages, which were inside a larger shipment of real fresh watermelon. In other words, that’s a total value of over $600,000.
During a news release, Port Director Efrain Solis Jr. said,
Smugglers continue to be creative as they attempt to introduce illegal narcotics into our country. Our frontline CBP officers’ experience, vigilance and attention to detail prevents the introduction of these dangerous drugs into our country.
Disguising cannabis as watermelon may not be the smartest move. The case remains under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security.
