A man is now in custody after a drug bust in southeast Houston where police seized several bales of marijuana.

ABC13 got exclusive video as undercover officers stopped a truck on the Gulf Freeway and Moseley on Thursday morning. That's when they found the pot in the truck. The driver, the lone occupant of the vehicle, was arrested.

Houston police say the officers seized about 400 lbs of marijuana, with a street value of about $500,000. They say it appears the man was transporting the drugs.

The arrest was part of a narcotics investigation, according to police.
