U.S. Customs and Border Protection discovered more than 6,000 pounds of marijuana hidden in a shipment of door knobs (pictured). The tractor trailer hauling the marijuana was stopped at the Calexico East port cargo facility on the U.S/Mexico border in California.
Authorities say drug-sniffing dogs alerted officers to a total of 458 wrapped packages in 67 boxes and investigators estimate the marijuana’s value around $6 million. A 30-year-old trucker from Mexicali, Mexico, was arrested. His name wasn’t released.
