CBP Douglas Nabs Another Marijuana Smuggler
TUCSON, Ariz. – For the third time in less than a week, Customs and Border Protection officers at the Raul Hector Castro Port of Entry in Douglas, Arizona, have arrested an individual attempting to smuggle marijuana; this time nearly 260 pounds.
CBP officers working with a narcotics-detection canine Tuesday found more than $129,000 worth of marijuana hidden throughout a Pontiac SUV driven by an 18-year-old Tucson woman.
Last Friday, officers at the Port of Douglas seized more than 270 pounds of marijuana worth approximately $136K.
Officers seized the drugs and vehicle, and turned the subject over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
