Cameron County (KFXV) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at the Gateway International Bridge in Brownsville confiscated a load of marijuana estimated at $67,000.

Upon a secondary inspection, CBP officers discovered 14 hidden packages in the vehicle, containing a total of 335.50 pounds of marijuana.

The driver of the vehicle was placed under arrest, and handed over to the agents of Homeland Security for further investigation.
