Load of cocaine

A man was busted with a large load of cocaine after attempting to smuggle it into the U.S.

Cocaine valued at approximately $1,305,728 was found hidden in a car, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a press release.

A 28-year-old Brownsville man was arrested in connection to the load.

At secondary inspection, officers discovered the 20 pounds of cocaine in a car driven by Adrian Cantu.

The eight packages were seized along with the 28-year-old's car.

The man was turned over to the U.S. Homeland Security Investigations special agents.
