$100K In Meth Seized By Nogales CBP Officers

Officers removed 33 pounds of meth within the roof of a smuggling vehicle

On Thursday, at Arizona’s Port of Nogales, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Mexican national connected with a failed attempt to smuggle methamphetamine into the United States.

A 29-year-old Mexican man from Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, was referred for further inspection of his Volkswagen sedan by CBP officers at the Mariposa Crossing. A CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to a scent it was trained to detect within the vehicle’s roof. Officers removed multiple packages of drugs, which were identified as more than 33 pounds of methamphetamine, worth nearly $100,000.

Officers seized the drugs as well as the vehicle. The subject was arrested and then turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
