Customs and Border Protection officials in Nogales say the load was being smuggled across the Mexican border in a tractor-trailer on Thursday evening.
During an X-ray inspection, officers found anomalies and called for a narcotics detection dog. The dog alerted to drugs as the tomato pallets were being unloaded for inspection.
210 bales of marijuana, worth an estimated $4.2 million, were seized. The driver, a 48-year-old man from Mexico, was arrested and turned over to ICE.
