FREER, Texas (TND) — A suspicious-looking car had local deputies asking the Border Patrol for help, and they ended up seizing a whole lot of meth.

The incident happened Wednesday in Freer, Texas.

A Border Patrol agent from Laredo got called to help Duval County authorities with a traffic stop, and a canine working for the feds was also called.

They said the dog “alerted to the vehicle,” so it was taken to a checkpoint where a non-intrusive scan “revealed anomalies in the rear bumper.”

“Agents discovered numerous bundles inside the vehicle.”
