On April 14, 2014, at around 9:30 p.m. the Domestic Highway Enforcement (DHE) Unit responded to a request for assistance from the Dallas office of the Drug Enforcement Administration regarding a tractor trailer that contained suspicious items and was traveling through Dallas. Members of the DHE squad responded to the location. Further investigation revealed the trailer contained items that were not noted on the manifest for the load.
A Dallas Police K-9 dog was utilized and alerted to several pallets that had been on the trailer. Detectives also observed what appeared to be marijuana inside a box. A search of the trailer revealed 13,000 lbs. of marijuana packaged in 12-25 lb. bundles. The estimated street value is approximately $6.5 million.
