The incidents happened on Wednesday, Aug. 16 at two border crossings after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers stopped two tractor trailers for secondary inspections.

The first trailer was a 2004 international trailer that was transporting mangoes across the Laredo Port of Entry.

Canines alerted officers to further inspection of the vehicle and discovered 480 packages containing 3,624 pounds of alleged marijuana.
