Early Tuesday morning, a group of suspects decided it was a good idea to load bundles of marijuana into a Chevy pickup, and begin a cross country trek through the heart of the Big Bend. #almostmadeit #didntthinkitthroughdidya
During our daring traveler's journey, they trespassed on a number of ranches, cutting fences and locks along the way. #probablyluckywecaughtyoufirst #ihaterudebehaviorinaman #norespect
