That’s a big stash:
It’s being called the largest marijuana bust ever at the Calexico port of entry. Federal agents say they seized nearly nine tons of pot inside a shipment of flat-panel television sets.
Drug dogs alerted border patrol agents to the tractor-trailer Friday afternoon. Inside they found over 1,000 packages of pot along with the TVs.
Ironically, police were tipped off when all the TVs displayed a colorful psychedelic snow pattern.
