Lukeville CBP Canine Sniffs Out Drugs In Trailer

Officers removed and seized 20 packages of marijuana that were hidden beneath the wood slats of a flatbed trailer

After CBP officers selected a Ford truck pulling a flatbed trailer for a secondary inspection, a narcotics-detection canine alerted to the trailer. When officers disassembled the trailer, they discovered packages of marijuana beneath the wood planks.

Officers arrested the 43-year old Mexican national male driver and processed the vehicle, trailer, and drugs for seizure. The driver was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
