U.S. border patrol officers in Texas discovering a huge drug shipment- hidden in a batch of fresh carrots! 

Authorities admit these drug smugglers were certainly creative in their attempt to smuggle narcotics into the U.S. from Mexico. 

But investigators found nearly three-thousand carrot-shaped marijuana packages hidden among the real thing. 

The drugs have a street value of nearly half a million dollars.
