NEWS / CBP Officers Intercept Marijuana Smuggling Attempt in New York

Champlain, N.Y. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection today announced the seizure of approximately 12 pounds of marijuana from a 31-year-old Brooklyn man. The seizure resulted in the arrest of Garry Dorcelus, a U.S. citizen from Brooklyn, N.Y.

On November 8, CBP officers encountered Dorcelus, as he applied for admission into the United States on a commercial bus at the Champlain port of entry in Champlain, N.Y. During the passenger inspection, the subject told CBP officers that he was returning from a short trip to Montreal. A CBP narcotics detector dog alerted on the subject’s baggage during the bus compartment inspection. A subsequent baggage search by CBP officers led to the discovery of 11 vacuum sealed bags containing the marijuana.

“The discovery of the marijuana is the direct result of alert CBP officers conducting a thorough inspection of the bus and its passengers. The use of the narcotics detector dog allowed officers to quietly identify the contraband,” said James T. Engleman, CBP director of Field Operations for the Buffalo Field Office. “Dorcelus was turned over to the custody of the New York State Police pending arraignment on felony charges of criminal possession of marijuana.”
