ALICE - A man who claims he was heading to a wedding in San Antonio was caught with 33 bundles of marijuana in his gas tank this morning during a traffic stop in Jim Wells county. Officials say the pot has a street value of $500,000.
According to the Alice Echo-News Journal, a deputy stopped the SUV on Highway 281 because the man was driving in the left lane without passing. An initial search of the vehicle turned up nothing until a scope was put into the gas tank.
