A Mexican national discovered on Tuesday that a bunch of bell peppers won't conceal more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana from the authorities.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection made the find while the man was attempting to enter the United States through a commercial facility in Nogales with the load in a tractor-trailer.

After being pegged for the "additional inspection," the CBP says an X-ray uncovered an "anomaly" in the shipment.

A drug-sniffing dog sniffed out what it's trained to sniff out, and 280 packages of weed, totaling more than 1,000 pounds, was found underneath the bell peppers.

The name of the 35-year-old driver wasn't released since he wasn't immediately charged but rather turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.

It's not hard to believe that some people are really that stupid. They'll try anything.

Jalapeno's may have been more effective.

@JoeArpaioFan Not stupid, it's the shotgun approach. The amount of weed available for the cartel to ship over the border is essentially limitless. The couriers are expendable as are individual loads. They could (but don't) lose over 50%% of weed shipped and still be way in the black.

@david_saint01 @wqcharleston Probably but even that would fool agents.
