The agency says in a news release that agents from Lordsburg found the drugs Thursday hidden in a remote locale about eight miles north of the border with Mexico.

A specially trained dog sniffed out the marijuana in the area, which has been used by drug smugglers in the past.

The Border Patrol turned the bundles over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
