    CORPUS CHRISTI - A phony TXDOT dump truck was pulled over Friday just north of Freer with a large load of marijuana in the back of it.
    The Duval County Sheriff's Office said a Mexican national was driving the truck and they are trying to figure out where he was coming from and where he was headed.
    Officers said he was hauling 4,500 pounds of pot in the truck worth more than $3.6 million. The driver is being held at the Duval County Jail.

    Maybe he was headed south and going to smuggle the pot into Mexico. Guns are kinda hot atm.

    We had a tropper come in and talk to our guys about Emergency Vehicle Ops, unsafe speeds, etc (after one of our medics got a ticket in the ambulance) and he mentioned that when they do interdiction they've been looking at ambulances, TxDOT trucks etc as they had been having this, then here it is on the news

    coming back from a call... the officer observed them transporting a patient to the hospital doing 80 in a 65, then on the way back to our town clocked them at 84 in a 65 and wrote the ticket... ticket was dismissed later

    Using TxDOT truck look-alikes to smuggle pot, huh?

    Must've been the Mexico plates on it that gave it away...

    Rock on! :texas:
