A Mexican man is accused of trying to smuggle nearly 80 fraudulent credit cards out of southern Arizona, federal authorities say.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers were conducting an inspection of a tourist bus at the Dennis DeConcini Port in Nogales.

They selected 23-year-old Leonardo Daniel Robles Castro of Hermosillo, Sonora, for further inspection.

CBP officers say they found and seized two packages containing a total of 79 counterfeit credit cards along with a fraudulent driver’s license.

Robles was arrested and referred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, authorities say.
