Douglas CBP Officers Seize $104K in Marijuana
TUCSON, Ariz. – Customs and Border Protection officers at the Raul Hector Castro Port of Entry in Douglas, Arizona arrested a 33-year-old man from Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, in connection with a failed attempt to smuggle more than 200 pounds of marijuana into the United States July 13.
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.
