After officers referred the man for a secondary inspection of his Ford SUV, a CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs. Officers then removed multiple packages of marijuana found throughout the vehicle’s interior and exterior, to include the headliner, seats, doors and a front tire.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicle, and turned the subject over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
