CBP Officers in Douglas Seize $125K in Marijuana
TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Raul Hector Castro Port in Douglas, Arizona, arrested an 18-year-old Arizona woman Friday after finding almost 250 pounds of marijuana hidden throughout her 2008 Toyota Camry.
When the woman attempted to enter the U.S. Friday afternoon, a CBP officer directed the woman to a secondary inspection area. Once in secondary, officers discovered anomalies that turned out to be more than 200 packages of marijuana.
Officers seized the drugs, worth close to $125,000, and vehicle. The driver was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
