Authorities at a border checkpoint in San Diego seized nearly four tons of marijuana buried in a shipment of jalapeño peppers, officials said.

A photo of the shipment tweeted Saturday by the acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection showed several large, green packages apparently containing marijuana surrounded by red chili peppers.

Officials at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry said the pot was stored in 314 packages aboard a tractor-trailer loaded with jalapeños.
