CALEXICO, Calif., June 27, 2007 - Border Patrol agents surrounded a local Wal-Mart today and searched inside for suspected drug smugglers.

It started earlier this afternoon as Border Patrol and Marine helicopters followed a truck suspected of smuggling drugs to a Calexico Wal-Mart.

Three people got out of the truck and went into the store.

Agents swarmed in and discovered several bundles of marijuana weighing nearly 300 pounds.

The three suspects were arrested and turned over to the DEA.
