SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man is under arrest after Customs and Border Protection officers reportedly found 113 pounds of cocaine concealed in his truck.

Authorities say the drugs were hidden inside a propane tank that was strapped to the bed of the truck.

The man was driving through the San Ysidro Port of Entry early Saturday when agents pulled him over for an in-depth investigation of his vehicle.

When they ran the truck through an imaging system, they saw the packages inside the tank.

The cocaine has a street value of $1.4 million.
