Beer with a different ingredient

NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - October 21, 2010

Federal agents report finding 800 pounds of pot hidden in rail cars at the Arizona border.

Authorities found more than 555 pounds of the illegal weed hidden in boxes labeled beer.

Customs agents were suspicious and called in a drug-sniffing dog.

In another incident, officials say nearly 280 pounds of pot were found in an empty tanker car.

Officials put the value of both busts at more $700,000.
