      Driver slams into fence, 74 bundles seized

      A suspected drug smuggler tries to get away from police, and ends up crashing right into a fence.

      According to La Feria Police Chief Don Garcia, officers attempted to pull the driver, Miguel Infante Perez, over Thursday morning for a traffic violation, but the driver refused to stop.

      The Chief said a brief chase began and ended quickly on Mile 3 and Expressway 83 when Perez crashed into a fence at a drywall company.

      Seventy four bundles of marijuana were seized from inside the vehicle.

      The 23-year-old Mexican National was arrested and will face multiple charges.

      Police estimate the drugs are worth any where from $800,000 to $1,000,000.
