NOGALES, Ariz., Jan. 23 (UPI) — What U.S. officials are calling the biggest marijuana shipment ever smuggled from Mexico has been seized at a border crossing in Arizona.

Some seven tons of the illegal weed was found in a semi-trailer that had entered the country at Nogales, The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday.

The 600 bundles had an estimated value of $12 million, officials with U.S. Customs and Border Patrol said.

The 26-year-old driver, from Nogales, Sonora, was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
