Border Busts

A Mexican man was arrested March 12, 2013 at the Nogales Commercial Facility for attempting to smuggle more than a ton of marijuana into the United States in crates of bell peppers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers referred the tractor-trailer for an additional inspection. After an anomaly was discovered using a commercial x-ray system, a CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs co-mingled within a shipment of bell peppers. A further search led to the discovery of 280 packages of marijuana worth slightly more than $1,068,000. The drugs and tractor-trailer were processed for seizure.
