Border Patrols arrested a U.S. citizen Sunday after finding nearly $750,000 in marijuana concealed in false compartments built into his truck.
Agents at the State Route 83 checkpoint stopped a 2003 F-350 pickup truck when a canine team alerted to the vehicle.
Agents then found 444 wrapped bricks of marijuana throughout the pickup truck, totaling 1,500 pounds.
The DEA took possession of the marijuana and the man was turned over for prosecution.
His name and hometown were not released.
