Feds: Huge marijuana bust at Nogales border crossing

  • Updated

Agents recently made a huge marijuana seizure at a commercial truck crossing point on the U.S.-Mexico border in Nogales, Ariz., federal authorities say.

The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol is withholding details of the seizure before a news conference scheduled Tuesday.

However, the agency says the seizure was made Jan. 15 and involved more than seven tons of marijuana with an estimated value of $7 million.

Customs and Border Patrol says it will hold the news conference at the Mariposa Port and that media will be able to view the marijuana and where it was seized.

The port is a major crossing point for commercial truck traffic, particularly for produce being imported into the United States from Mexico.
