Drugs found with limes

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A shipment of 'limes' was used as a shield to hide 1200 pounds of marijuana in an 18 wheeler. The illegal transport came to a stop last night in Nacogdoches.   DPS troopers made the stop at Southwest Stallings Drive Saturday night. The driver's story just didn't measure up, so the trooper went searching. The packaged marijuana was found among the limes with the aid of a drug dog. The Edinburgh truck driver was placed under arrest. What he was hauling was worth about $70,000 on the street.
