A semi-truck entering the United States in Detroit had 3,175 pounds of marijuana hidden in tires, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said.

The truck entered the country from Canada on April 20 and was referred to an extra screening at the Fort Street Cargo Facility.

During that search, the weed was found hidden inside the tires in brown packing paper and garbage bags.
