Chicago police seized a big shipment of marijuana that has an estimated street value of more than $2.6 million. A tip led the officers to the 400 pounds of pot on the city's West Side.

The drugs apparently came from Mexico and South America, and went to California and Texas before being sent to Chicago.

Officers in the department's High Intensity Drug Trafficking Team made the seizure, assisted by state police and US postal inspectors.
