PRESIDIO - Border Patrol at the Presidio port of entry made a huge drug bust.

On Wednesday, a truck hauling a trailer pulled in from Mexico.

After an inspection, officers found over 600 pounds of pot hidden in the hollow metal framing of the truck.

So far, no one has been arrested but officials say charges could follow.

Earlier that day, El Paso stations also seized over 400 pounds of marijuana, 42 pounds of cocaine and $85,000.

They also made two fugitive arrests, one of which was tied to a double murder case in New Mexico.
