Posted on February 12th, 2010 No Comments

United States Border Patrol agents in El Paso, Texas seized 31 pounds of marijuana on Wednesday.

A statement released by the U.S. Border Patrol says agents discovered the drugs in a truck attempting to cross the border. A search of the vehicle uncovered numerous framed portraits of Jesus Christ. Agents removed the paintings’ backing to find 31 bundles of marijuana, totaling more than 31 pounds.

The truck was driven by a 22 year-old Mexican woman from Ciudad Juarez. She informed the agents that she had nothing to declare but some framed art.

Border Patrol agents told reporters that the woman was turned over to the El Paso Police Department for prosecution.
