TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Arizona’s Port of San Luis arrested a 30-year-old Yuma man this morning after finding nearly $103,000 worth of marijuana in his Dodge truck when he attempted to enter the United States.

A CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the truck’s auxiliary fuel tank, where officers found more than 200 pounds of marijuana.

Officers seized the marijuana and vehicle, and turned the suspected violator over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
