Arizona CBP Officers Arrest Juvenile Drug Smuggler

Release Date: 
January 12, 2010

San Luis, Ariz. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the San Luis port of entry foiled a marijuana smuggling attempt by a 16-year-old United States citizen.

On January 11, the 16-year-old juvenile attempted to bypass the CBP officers by posing as a regular law abiding citizen. The officers suspected the young man was hiding something due to his demeanor and referred him into the passport control secondary office for further inspection.

In the secondary area the officers noticed a bulge around his torso area and immediately took him into custody. The packages were found to contain more than five pounds of marijuana.

The marijuana was seized and the young man was turned over to the San Luis, Ariz. Police Department for further investigation and processing.

The marijuana has an estimated street value of $11,827.20
