DETROIT (AP) — More than a ton of marijuana has been seized by federal agents in Detroit.

About 2,583 pounds (1,171 kilograms) of pot was found Wednesday packed among pallets during an inspection of a tractor trailer at the Fort Street Cargo Facility southwest of downtown, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday.

The truck had entered Detroit from Canada via the Ambassador Bridge and was sent to a secondary inspection area at the facility. Its manifest listed aluminum caps as cargo.

Results of an x-ray scan were inconsistent with what the truck was listed as transporting, the agency said.
