Check Out: Pot-Stuffed Car Seized by Border Patrol

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  Check out this picture from Border Patrol of a Ford Exhibition stuffed to the gills with pot.

Border Patrol agents were on patrol, last Thursday, near the Rio Grande River, near La Casita, Texas when they observed several people loading wrapped packages into the vehicle.  When the authorities approached the alleged smugglers fled.  The vehicle was stuffed with over 1,000 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $3.5 million.

La Casita-Garciasville, as the town is formally known, is a border town with nearly 2,200 residents with median family income pegged at $17,150.
