NEWS / Highway 78 Checkpoint Yields Marijuana Seizure

Blythe, Calif. – U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Yuma Sector seized just over 100 pounds of marijuana and arrested one suspected smuggler yesterday.

While in secondary, the driver, a 53-year-old male Mexican national, consented to a search of his vehicle following an alert by a canine team. During the search of the vehicle, a white 1991 GMC Sonoma Truck, agents discovered a hidden compartment constructed of welded metal inside the spare tire. The hidden compartment contained several plastic-wrapped bundles of marijuana. Agents checked the remaining tires and found similar compartments.

The marijuana, which weighed 101.41 pounds with an estimated street value of $81,128, was turned over to the Imperial County Sherriff’s Office along with the driver and vehicle.
