Border agents found more than a ton of alleged marijuana creatively smuggled in a shipment of fresh carrots at the Texas-Mexico border this weekend.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection came across $500,000 worth of marijuana disguised as carrots during a traffic stop at the Texas-Mexico border near the Gulf of Mexico.

According to NBCDFW, the discovery occurred last Sunday when agents noticed something peculiar about the tractor-trailer. After a detailed search, over a ton (3,000 lbs) of carrot-shaped packages were found mixed in with the real vegetable. Officials noted the marijuana hidden inside them held a street value of approximately $499,000.

“Once again, drug smuggling organizations have demonstrated their creativity in attempting to smuggle large quantities of narcotics across the U.S./Mexico border,” said Port Director Efrain Solis Jr., of the Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry. “Our officers are always ready to meet those challenges and remain vigilant towards any type of illicit activities.”

Homeland Security Investigations has launched a case into the discovery.

Vegetables may be a common way drug cartels sneak contraband into the United States. In November 2015, agents stopped a truck at the same Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge carrying nearly $2 million worth of alleged cocaine and marijuana packages hidden in cucumbers and carrots.
