PRESIDIO - Border Protection Officers in Presidio seized more than 140 pounds of marijuana from the ceiling of a vehicle.
The discovery was made on Saturday night when a SUV tried to come in from Mexico.
After officers spoke with the driver and scanned the vehicle with an x-ray system, they found about 200 tape-wrapped bundles of marijuana hidden in a ceiling compartment.
The drugs have a street value of more than $100,000.
A Mexican National was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for the failed smuggling attempt.
