4 tons of pot smuggled in Easter baskets

Border Patrol finds 4 tons of pot being smuggled in Easter baskets
March 9, 2005

SAN DIEGO - Federal border authorities Wednesday reported finding more than four tons of marijuana secreted in Easter baskets and packed in a big rig en route from Baja California to the United States.

The tractor-trailer entered the Otay Mesa Port of Entry shortly before the inspection center closed for the night on Monday, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

Suspecting something was amiss with the vehicle, agents held it until the next morning, when a search turned up the 8,800-pound haul of cannabis hidden in 662 packages, CBP spokesman Vince Bond said.

They questioned the driver, a 33-year-old Mexican national, then released him pending further investigations, Bond said.
