TUCSON – Too many chips aren’t good for you, but when mixed with fentanyl they are surely lethal. Thanks to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers a load of lethality was intercepted this weekend.
Arizona’s Port of Lukeville U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Mexican national after he was caught with the fentanyl worth over $25,000 weighing nearly 2.5 pounds.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, on Sunday morning, officers referred the 27-year-old Mexican male for a secondary inspection of his Jeep SUV as he applied to enter the United States from Mexico. A drug detecting dog alerted to the odor of the drugs, leading officers to the discovery of more than a dozen packages of fentanyl pills, which was concealed within packages of chips as well as within a cup of shredded beef.
