Customs agents stopped a load of nearly two tons of marijuana from slipping into the US at the port of El Paso. 

The marijuana was hidden in a tractor trailer hauling a load of copy paper. The trailer came from Mexico and the drugs were found when agents x-rayed it. 

US customs and boarder patrol estimates the street value of the drugs seized to be more than three million dollars.
