‚ÄčA Texas man was convicted of marijuana charges after 78 pounds of cannabis were found packed in the tires of a pickup he drove through the border crossing in Brownsville earlier this year.

Edith “Eddie” Camacho, 36, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute marijuana earlier this week, federal prosecutors said, reports Dale Lezon at the Houston Chronicle.
Camacho was driving a Ford F-150 pickup on April 21 when he entered the United States through Brownsville, according to federal officials.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers discovered marijuana stuffed in the tires when they inspected the truck.
Camacho, who is scheduled to be sentenced November 8, faces up to five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
