Border Patrol makes multiple drug busts

Border Patrol agents are reporting significant drug busts over the pasttwo days. More than 6 tons of pot, and a haul of cocaine.

But one of the big marijuana busts, more than 5,000 pounds of it worth more than $4 million dollars crammed inside a couple of SUVs, pulled over by agentsWednesday night. Vehicles that led the Border Patrol to a single house in Nogales.

A gated house in the Meadow Hills neighborhood of Nogales --not the most likely place to find thousands of pounds of weed.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol gave News 4 video that shows thatsmugglers made it to a home after driving through the border.

Large type vehicles coming across and followed them tracked the sign, it led them to the house.

The trucks made their way up to that house where the drivers bailed, ditched walkie talkies and then took off.

DEA got a search warrant for the house,didn't find anything inside, but found plenty outside.

Agent Jesus Rodriguez said, "What we've been seeing is anywhere from 1,000 pounds in excess of 2,000 but 5,000 is pretty big."

Photos show that all of it was crammed into 4-wheel drive pickup trucks, both stolen out of Tucson.

No one lives inside of the house, but smugglers left behind $4.2 million in cargo.

Rodriguez says a generous monsoon season has supplied cartels with profit.

"It lends itself to a lot of marijuana being grown and harvested. This is the time when they start to ship the marijuana north," Rodriguez said.
