NEWS / Marijuana Seized Thanksgiving Morning at Arizona Border


Douglas, Arizona ó U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Douglas, Ariz. border inspection stations stopped a drug smuggling attempt when they seized nearly 27 pounds of marijuana from a 25-year-old man on Thanksgiving morning.


On Thanksgiving Day at about 6 a.m. CBP officers at the Douglas Port of Entry were screening travelers and vehicles when they came in contact with a 25-year-old man driving a Chevy Corsica. The man was identified as a Mexican National and resident of Cananea, Sonora, Mexico.


The CBP officers became suspicious of the man and selected him for further inspection. The vehicle was searched and discovered that the rocker panels of the Corsica were loaded with packages of marijuana. The total weight of marijuana was 27 pounds with an estimated street value of $28,000.


CBP officers seized the vehicle and marijuana. The man was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for questioning and further investigation.


While anti-terrorism is the primary mission of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the inspection process at ports of entry associated with this mission results in impressive numbers of enforcement actions in all categories.
