U.S. Border Patrol officers busted an unusual drug-smuggling operation in Texas.

Photos show what may look like a batch of fresh carrots, but officials say it's actually 2,500 pounds of marijuana.

The smugglers hid 3,000 orange carrot-shaped packages in a huge shipment of real vegetables.

The drugs have a street value of nearly half a million dollars.
