Drug smugglers pretend to be federal agency

TUCSON, AZ - Border patrol agents have found a truck made to look as if it belonged to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service but which was actually carrying more than 3,200 pounds of marijuana.

Agents in Douglas, Arizona, found the truck with the federal agency's decals on Tuesday along the border with Mexico. The driver and a passenger fled from the truck into Mexico after being pulled over by border agents.

Agents then discovered that the truck, which had fake decals, was filled with $1.6 million worth of marijuana.
