Trucker Arrested After Authorities Find Pot Stashed With Watermelons

A trucker has been arrested in eastern San Diego County after Border Patrol agents found 700 pounds of pot stashed with his load of watermelons.

The San Diego Union-Tribune says agents stopped the tractor-trailer rig on Wednesday night at a checkpoint in Pine Valley.

Agent Scott Simon says the driver looked nervous and was directed to pull over for a secondary search. Simon says a drug-sniffing dog led agents to the trailer where they found 84 cellophane-wrapped bundles of marijuana inside a trash bag and two suitcases on top of a pallet of watermelons.

The 37-year-old Los Angeles man was arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling.
