Abandoned SUV in Texas had 1,127 pounds of marijuana inside, driver left wallet in vehicle, sheriff's office says

This driver may have fled the scene, but left a very, very important clue behind for authorities.

The Brewster County Sheriff's Office in Texas said on Facebook that deputies were conducting an operation with U.S. Border Patrol agents near Highway 90 when they recovered approximately 1,127 pounds of marijuana.

The marijuana was packaged and stacked from floor to ceiling inside the SUV in the county located along the U.S. border with Mexico.
