$40,000 worth of marijuana found inside bags at Texas golf course

Sneaking drugs across the border into Texas wasn’t successful for whoever tried to smuggle golf bags full of marijuana onto a golf course.

According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection press release, three golf bags stuffed with 50 pounds of pot each were discovered in Brownsville last week.

Investigators said the bags were found when Border Patrol agents executed a search of the area after observing several men swimming across the Rio Grande to Mexico.

Law enforcement officials estimated the seized drugs to be worth more than $40,000.
