Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

A 18-wheeler traveling Southbound on IH-35 headed to Laredo, Texas was stopped by Ellis County Sheriff's Officers Friday, April 9 and discovered 28 assault rifles, approximately 700 rounds of ammunition, and loaded magazines concealed inside the legitimate trailer load. 

Deputies asked for and received consent to search the 18-wheeler from the driver; whose name is being withheld for investigative reasons. 

The truck driver agreed to move the 18-wheeler to a location better suited to allow for a search of the truck and trailer and drove to the Wal-Mart in Waxahachie.

Deputies off-loaded the legitimate load destined and discovered the hidden guns.
