Nogales, Ariz. — Customs and Border Protection officers at the Nogales ports of entry wrapped up a busy weekend with narcotics seizure, an arrest of a wanted Phoenix man and numerous immigration violations.

Heading into the weekend CBP officers seize 22 pounds of marijuana in a pick-up truck. The street value of the narcotics is estimated to be as much as $53,000.

On Friday, September 12 CBP officers working the Mariposa port of entry were screening travelers returning to the United States when a 50-year-old man from Sonora applied for entry. The man was driving a late model pick-up truck. The primary officer noticed discrepancies with the truck and referred it for further inspection.
