The U.S. Customs and Border Protection did an X-ray scan of a semi-truck along with a physical inspection by officers and a K-9 team, which led them to the discovery of 2,175 pounds of marijuana on May 11.

WDIV says the marijuana was hidden in boxes of foam pool toys. The CBP seized the cargo and semi-truck.
