Teens busted with 158 lbs of pot in La Joya

A drug bust in La Joya landed two 19-year-olds behind bars on Friday.

The teens were allegedly driving around with more than a hundred pounds of marijuana when they were pulled over because their brake light was out.

Upon inspection, officers noticed a fake speaker box in the car.

Inside the box, they found 158 pounds of pot.

"That was possibly to conceal the odor of the contraband, which is marijuana," said La Joya Police Chief Jose Del Angel.

The two teens have been charged with possession of marijuana.
