According to KSAT, the US border patrol has put out a curious press release in an attempt to tout their recent actions.

Summarized over the course of a week, agents at various stations have collectively found two people dead, 13 more in a locked trailer, and seized over 5,000 pounds of cannabis in various places.

They say the largest seizure occurred Monday on the banks of the Rio Grande river near La Rosita when agents approached a group of smugglers who were loading bundles of marijuana into a Chevrolet TrailBlazer.

Upon seeing the agents the men fled and left behind 1,200 pounds of cannabis.

No press release was found pertaining to this on the border patrol website.
