Fentanyl Smuggler Nabbed By Port of Lukeville CBP Officers

A Phoenix resident was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers after seizing more than 21 pounds of suspected fentanyl from him.

On Sunday afternoon, the 25-year-old U.S. citizen was referred for secondary inspection of his Ford SUV as he applied to re-enter the United States from Mexico. A CBP canine alerted to an odor it is trained to detect, leading officers to the discovery of multiple packages inside the motor area of the vehicle, worth approximately $291,000.

Officers arrested the smuggler and turned him over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, while the drugs and the vehicle were seized.

  1. WHY CAN’T THE FEDS JUST CLOSE THE BORDER? WHY ALLOW THE CRIMES TO CONTINUE.
    PUT PRESSURE ON MEXICO TO STOP THE HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND THE TONS OF NARCOTICS
    ENTERING THE U.S.
    I TRULY BELIEVE MEXICO IS FUNDING THESE ACTIVITIES.
