    Police discovered approximately $5 million worth of marijuana in unmarked boxes that were hidden behind boxes that were labeled as containing Barbie toys inside a tractor trailer that was parked in a truck depot in San Bernardino on Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014.

    An estimated 10,000 pounds of marijuana was found hidden behind what appeared to be boxes of Barbie toys piled up in a tractor trailer Thursday evening, according to San Bernardino police.

    The packaged weed was seized from a truck depot in San Bernardino around 7 p.m., police said.

    The marijuana was packed in unmarked cardboard boxes that were hidden behind decoy boxes that appeared to contain "Barbie Sisters Camper" toys. Police had been working on an investigation that led them to the truck depot, and upon arrival, discovered the suspicious looking truck.

    Police suspect that the marijuana was not grown in the United States. Lt. Travis Walker said that the truck was likely dropped to the undisclosed location, and was unaware of whether that was its final destination.

    No arrests have been made but police say they have a lead on the suspects.
