Description

KGTV-TV investigated the case of two Mexican citizens sentenced to five years in a Mexican prison for drug trafficking after they bought a truck from the U.S. Customs auction hall that still had old Marijuana hidden inside. The KGTV-TV investigation revealed U.S. Customs did not perform a thorough search of the truck before selling it at the auction. The investigation helped overturn the Mexicans' conviction and freed them from prison.
