DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection says Border Patrol agents seized more than $500,000 worth of marijuana after a vehicle pursuit near Douglas.

ABC15 (KNXV-TV) reports (https://bit.ly/2uLQS6o ) agents started to pursue the suspicious vehicle Sunday after it was spotted by another agent operating surveillance technology.

As an agent pulled alongside the vehicle to speak with the driver, the driver turned around and began to flee toward Mexico.

The driver did not stop until reaching the international border.

Authorities say the driver and passenger fled into Mexico on foot.

Following the pursuit, agents located more than 1,000 pounds (454 kilograms) of marijuana bundles inside the vehicle.
