BROWNSVILLE — Rio Grande City-based Border Patrol agents found more than a million dollars worth of marijuana as well as an Amazon parrot during Friday night patrols of the river banks, Customs and Border Protection said Monday.

The agents found the bird, valued at about $200, hidden in a beer box after they approached a group of people, all of whom fled into surrounding brush.

Later that evening, the agents spotted people loading bundles into the bed of a pickup. Those people also fled, leaving behind close to 1,300 pounds of marijuana.
