Authorities said the marijuana has an estimated street value of
nearly $925,000.

A deputy patrolling Interstate 10 pulled over a semi-truck for
traffic violations Wednesday. As he approached the big rig, he said
he smelled marijuana and De La Vega acted nervous when asked to see
his load paperwork.

A drug-sniffing dog alerted authorities to the trailer, which had 32
large cardboard vegetable bins. Sheriff's officials said 1,243
pounds of marijuana was in duct-taped packages hidden under the squash.

Earlier this week, customs officers stopped a truck and found
marijuana hidden in bell peppers.
