Douglas CBP Officers Seize 265 Pounds of Pot

Release Date: 
December 13, 2013

Douglas, Ariz.   Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of Douglas seized nearly $132,000 worth of marijuana in two separate incidents Wednesday.

A 22-year-old Mexican national was referred for inspection of his Nissan sedan as he attempted to enter the United States. During the inspection, officers located 140 small packages of marijuana with a combined weight exceeding 204 pounds and worth an estimated $102,000.

Later that day, a 24-year-old Tucson man was taken into custody after officers discovered nearly 61 pounds of marijuana worth in excess of $30,000. The marijuana, in 55 packages, was discovered in the subject’s Scion sedan.

All drugs and vehicles were seized. Both subjects were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

Individuals arrested may be charged by complaint, the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity, which raises no inference of guilt.  An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
