Smugglers scheme gets squashed

NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - November 20, 2013

Federal authorities report seizing 10 tons of marijuana hidden in a truckload of squash.

U.S. Customs agents say they were alerted by a drug-sniffing dog during an inspection at a border crossing in Arizona.

It's a record-breaking bust in that state.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say they seized 881 bundles of weed, worth more than 10 million bucks.

Officials add the Mexican man driving the truck was busted.
