Troopers find fake school bus filled with marijuana

by Talia Hassan

LAREDO - State troopers are looking for a man who fled after he was caught driving a fake school bus stuffed with more than 5,000 pounds of marijuana.

The bus was stopped Saturday near the border of Mexico, on U.S. 59 just north of Laredo.

When the troopers searched the bus, they discovered that it was packed with 5,408 pounds of marijuana worth nearly $2 million dollars.

DPS said the bus was marked to look like it was from the United Independent School District.  But when the troopers pulled the driver over, he managed to escape and fled on foot.
