U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Tucson Sector seized $2.4 million worth of marijuana, recovered two stolen trucks and arrested 14 migrants on the Tohono O'odham Nation Tuesday.
In one incident, agents found two abandoned Ford trucks near Pisinemo that contained a total of 3,583 pounds of marijuana, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection news release.
The marijuana had an estimated value of $1.8 million. Authorities said a records check revealed the trucks were reported stolen in Phoenix.
In the other incident, agents found 1,216 pounds of marijuana abandoned near Pia-Oik Village, authorities said. The marijuana had an estimated value of $608,000.
Agents also arrested 14 undocumented migrants about one mile away from the bundles.
The vehicles were turned over to the state Department of Public Safety, and the marijuana was turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration, said authorities.
