PRESIDIO - Border Patrol Agents at the Presidio port of entry had their hands full last Thursday.

That's because they made three separate pot busts.

In total, they seized 208 pounds of weed.

It started at 8 a.m. when a Chevy pickup came in from Mexico.

Officers drilled the bed of the truck to find 121 pounds of weed.

Then 12 hours later, a Chevy Cavalier was searched and almost 40 pounds of weed was found in a fuel tank.

Then just five minutes later, a Dodge Neon was searched by a K-9 unit.

47 pounds of weed were found in the fuel tank of that car.

All three drivers were arrested.

This is the first time in several years that Presidio has had three busts in one day.
