Early this morning, agents working the immigration checkpoint referred a maroon 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix for a secondary inspection after a Border Patrol canine alerted to an odor it was trained to detect. When agents opened the vehicle’s trunk, they discovered multiple bundles of marijuana worth an estimated $62,500.
Agents arrested the driver on federal drug smuggling charges. She will remain in federal custody pending further disposition.
