Officials valued the drugs at more than $33,000. Rather than the dead inside a hearse, Border Patrol agents found marijuana inside a closed casket over the weekend, officials said. Willcox Boarder Patrol agents stopped a hearse near Tombstone and found 67 pounds of marijuana inside a casket, according to officials. The marijuana had been covered with manure to mask the smell.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of narcotics and contraband smuggling, and seized the drugs, according to a statement.

Agents called in a canine unit and searched the hearse after inconsistencies in the man's story to officials.

The bricks of marijuana are worth more than an estimated $33,000, border patrol agents said.
