CBP Officers Intercept Ammo Headed for Mexico
TUCSON, Ariz. — A southern California man was arrested May 17 for attempting to smuggle ammunition into Mexico through the Port of Nogales.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers conducting outbound inspections selected a Hyundai sedan, driven by a 21-year-old man from Long Beach, for further inspection. During the search, officers found 12,000 rifle rounds throughout the vehicle.
Officers seized the vehicle and ammunition, and referred the subject to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
