A man is in federal custody after being busted for transporting marijuana in Brownsville. The Border Patrol says agents were alerted on Tuesday after three people were seen carrying bundles across the border near Hope Park.
Agents followed the vehicle the bundles were placed in and tried to get it to pull over. The driver threw one bundle into the street before losing control and crashing into an electrical pole.
Fernando Ramirez was arrested and charged after he was found hiding inside a dumpster. More than 120 pounds of marijuana was seized by investigators.
