Curry County, New Mexico - A drug bust near Clovis Wednesday takes an estimated $2.5 Million dollars worth of drugs off the street.

The Curry County Sheriff's Office says 26 bales of suspected marijuana were found inside a hidden compartment in a horse trailer.

31 year old John Travis Hair of El Paso was driving on Highway 70 between Clovis and Portales when he was pulled over by the New Mexico Livestock Board to inspect his horses.
  
They called police when he could not show proof of ownership of the animals and the drugs were then found in the trailer.
