Douglas CBP Officers Seize more than $93K of Pot

Release Date: 
November 14, 2013

DOUGLAS, ARIZ.—Officers at the Port of Douglas seized nearly 187 pounds of marijuana yesterday, inside of a Ford van occupied by two female Mexican nationals.

Customs and Border Protection officers removed 149 packages of marijuana from throughout the interior of the vehicle; including the rear seats, quarter panels and door panels.

The drugs, worth an estimated $93,000, and vehicle were seized. The subjects’ visas were cancelled and both individuals 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.
