OROVILLE, Wash. — U.S. border guards uncovered more than $5.2 million worth of Ecstasy inside a container truck's doors Friday, marking one of the largest Northwest drug discoveries of its kind in recent years, a federal spokesman said.

The discovery of 182 pounds of the drug occurred at the border crossing on U.S. Route 97 near Oroville, said Mike Milne, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman.
