SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas (AP) - Texas game wardens have discovered nearly 950 pounds of marijuana in bundles hidden among the dunes at South Padre Island.

The Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has had additional wardens on duty during spring break and the drugs were found during patrols on land and sea.

Game wardens checking beach access points on Friday noticed heavy foot traffic from the water’s edge to the dunes. A search found several plastic-wrapped bundles identified as containing marijuana. A closer search led to more than a dozen bundles of drugs buried in the sand.

Investigators did not immediately announce any arrests.
