FALFURRIAS —Eight men on a Norteno band’s tour bus have been arrested in South Texas after more than 630 pounds of cocaine turned up in the vehicle.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says all eight suspects face charges of possession of a controlled substance related to the drugs worth $7.3 million.

A Border Patrol agent and his dog take a look inside the trunk of a vehicle passing through the Falfurrias checkpoint on U.S. Highway 281 in Brooks County.

The bus from the Alamo-based group Zinzzero was searched Sunday at the Falfurrias checkpoint. DPS says about 250 bundles of cocaine were located in a false compartment near the center of the bus.

Band manager Andy Prado had no comment Tuesday.

Norteno folk music is generally associated with northern Mexico and South Texas.
