Border busts

A man from Mexico was arrested Thursday at the Port of Nogales for trying to smuggle nearly 32 pounds of cocaine into the United States. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers referred the 21-year-old man for an additional inspection of his Toyota sedan narcotics detection dog alerted to the presence of drugs under the vehicle’s back seat and in the trunk. Officers found 10 packages of cocaine with a street value of nearly $287,000. The drugs and vehicle were processed for seizure. The man was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
