*EDIT*

More than 700 pounds of marijuana is off the streets after Border Patrol agents busted a group of drug smugglers along the Rio Grande in a remote area of Brownsville.

Border Patrols agents "It all happened off Flor de Mayo Road on Brownsville's northwest side shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday."

Full details were not immediately available but Border Patrols agents said they came across a group of drug smugglers along the Rio Grande in that area.

Border Patrol agents said they found 700 pounds of marijuana and a truck that had been stolen in Pharr.

Located off U.S. Highway 281 and along the Rio Grande, the Flor de Mayo neighborhood is a well-documented crossing point for illegal drugs.

They are always shooting at Border Patrol Agents, this is nothing new. I am surprised the not all of Customs trucks are blindadas.(armored)

Umm not accurate, the Brownsville Herald states that shots were not fired.

From the Brownsville Herald:
Contrary to some news reports, Border Patrol Spokeswoman Rosalinda Huey said the Border Patrol agents did not report hearing shots.

"At no times did agents hear any shots fired, and they did not fire any shots," she said.

They changed the story, in the morning when I posted this story I saved the link and now it changed saying they found 700LBS, but earlier it said that SHOTS WHERE FIRED

I know that some of what you see and read here on BLB may be hard to digest.Believe me when I tell you that i can not share with you things that I know happened but were kept out of the news.
This blog is the best combined media source both civilian news journalist and credentialed that their is.

Look, don't jump to conclusions every time a media report is made or changed - the initial stories are often filled with incorrect or conflicting information and then "fleshed out" as the day goes on.

Right now, the CBP says no shots fired contrary to earlier media reports.

There is not really any need to sanitize this issue, so my guess is someone got a little excited and jumped the gun on their story.

So, don't send in the bombers yet : )

This is odd. I live in La Galaxia which is right behind Flor De Mayo and around 11 AM, I stepped out of my house and I could have SWORN I heard gunshots, but I shrugged it off as either house construction or just random noises.

We have to "Jump the Gun" with news articles like this that are supposed to be from a reliable source. How else could we provide you the readers with the most recent news. Anyways, story was changed so I updated it, thanks for reading.
