A service dog alerted Border Patrol agents to a tractor-trailer just before midnight Thursday. Agents inspected the semitrailer and found more than 147 bundles of marijuana mixed in with a shipment of fruit juice.
The driver, the vehicle and the drugs were turned over to special agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Border Patrol said.
