    It happened at the Brownsville and Matamoros International Bridge Thursday. The vehicle's driver was identified as a 26-year-old male, Mexican citizen who resides in Matamoros.

    At secondary, CBP officers discovered hidden packages within the gray 2002 BMW Mini Cooper. They removed a total of 22 packages of cocaine from the BMW. They weighed a total of 54.5 pounds.

    Have any of ya'll seen the border patrol reality show? They show cars coming across the border and what they look for and how they find illegal drugs.

    Then they show them tearing apart cars to get at it. It's amazing how some of the cars have had frame rails opened, closed, welded, floors, fake floors, fake gas tanks, etc, etc.

    I can't believe how much work they put into some of those vehicles.

    I also can't believe how stupid some of them are...lol.

    I wonder where they stuck all that cocaine in a mini?

    Nope, he'll most likely roll over and become an undercover Mini and be sent back into Mexico to bring back more criminals. Some new vinyl and no one will recognize him!
