TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of San Luis arrested an 18-year-old Yuma man when he attempted to enter the U.S. on April 14 with more than five pounds of marijuana strapped to his body.

Officers at the San Luis pedestrian crossing selected Gerardo Isaac Ruiz-Moreno for a secondary inspection and discovered he had wrapped five packages of marijuana around his midsection and legs. Officers seized the drugs, worth nearly $2,600, and referred Ruiz to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
