SAN ANTONIO -- U.S. border patrol agents in the Rio Grande valley seized more than 9,000 pounds of marijuana over the past four days. The pot was worth over $ 7 million.

One group of smugglers they were pursuing escaped back to Mexico, but agents did arrest one man.

During the same stretch of time, border agents tell us, they rescued five men who were being smuggled into the U.S. in a closed cargo trailer. Those men will be sent back to Mexico.
