Lukeville CBP Canine Sniffs out Drugs in Trailer

Release Date

LUKEVILLE, Ariz. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Field Operations officers seized almost 42 pounds of marijuana, worth an estimated $21,000, Tuesday at Arizona’s Port of Lukeville.

After CBP officers selected a Ford truck pulling a flatbed trailer for a secondary inspection, a narcotics-detection canine alerted to the trailer. When officers disassembled the trailer, they discovered packages of marijuana beneath the wood planks.
