PRESIDIO - Border Patrol agents in Presidio seized something they hadn't seen in a while.

19 pounds of coke was found in the trunk of a Presidio man's car.

The officer says something was off about the car so they x-rayed it and had a dog sniff it.

And as they suspected, there was dope stashed inside.

Agents removed eight coke filled bundles from a secret compartment in the trunk.

38-year-old Hector Nieto, Junior, of Presidio was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents.
