Drug dealers are a crafty bunch. Border agents found $500,000 worth of marijuana attempting to be smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico, hidden in carrots. 

Reports  NBCDFW.com:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents found half a million dollars’ worth of marijuana disguised as carrots this week.

On Sunday, they stopped the tractor-trailer at the Pharr International Bridge along the Texas-Mexico border near the Gulf of Mexico.

Mixed in with real carrots, they found more than 2,800 orange, carrot-shaped packages.

Inside those packages there were nearly 2,500 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $499,000, officials said.

That’s over a ton of weed that won’t make it to the streets. Someone in Mexico is going to have to answer for this.

Homeland Security Investigations is on the case.
