Buckets and Buckets of Weed

More than 150 pounds of pot were found hidden inside 12 5-gallon buckets that appeared to be filled with carpet adhesive. The drugs were found inside a Lincoln Navigator at about 1 p.m. on Interstate 15 by Border Patrol agents.

Officials said the stop was made near the Mission Road exit. A short time later a Border Patrol K9 team found the marijuana, which was packed in plastic bags and covered with glue.

A 23-year-old suspect was arrested at the scene.
