MARFA, TX (KWES) -

Border Patrol agents busted a Kermit man trying to smuggle over half a million dollar's worth of marijuana through Texas.

Agents say the man tried to pass through the immigration checkpoint south of Marfa in his truck.

A K-9 let agents know that something wasn't quite right near the flatbed of the pickup.

So they popped open the tank on the back and found half a ton of pot inside, worth about $850,000 on the street.

Border agents arrested the man and turned him over to Homeland Security.
