Border patrol officers stopped a hearse at an immigration checkpoint Monday. Police dogs detected the smell of drugs.
Agents discovered a casket being carried inside. But the casket did not contain human remains; instead, it was filled with 67 POUNDS of marijuana separated into bricks (yes, a casket full of drugs was found in Tombstone). The street value of the weed is around $33,000.
Officers said there were also several bags of manure inside the casket to mask the marijuana smell.
The driver is being held on drug smuggling charges. [UPI]
