Cartel Nabbed for Smuggling Weed in Fake Watermelons

DEA Seizes Millions Worth of Marijuana in Fake-Ass Watermelons

What started off as a routine inspection turned into a major drug bust last Thursday in Tuscon, Arizona.

The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol stopped a tractor trailer filled with watermelons— at least that’s what the driver claimed they were. After using X-ray imaging, agents found out what the watermelons truly concealed: Cannabis. The driver had made it 20 miles into the United States and past one checkpoint before being stopped in Tucson. The DEA took custody of the weed and tractor trailer. The value of the marijuana is estimated to be worth millions of dollars.

Not bad for some fake-ass watermelons, eh?

According to Agent Bryan Flowers, this is not the first time the agency has unmasked drug smuggling via fruit. In April 2010, over 9,500 pounds of marijuana was found after being hidden in the cargo of real watermelons.
