A drug-sniffing dog got a snoot full Wednesday when he found $1.2 million worth of marijuana, hidden in a tractor-trailer of jalapenos.
The 50-year-old truck driver was arrested at the Nogales port of entry for attempting to smuggle more than 2,400 pounds of marijuana into the United States.
After a narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs in the semi, officers found 105 bales of marijuana hidden among a shipment of jalapenos.
The drugs and truck were processed for seizure. The driver was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
