TUCSON, AZ (CBS5) -
In three separate discoveries, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents seized 1,843 pounds of marijuana and arrested two smugglers.
The incidents took place over the weekend, starting Friday, when a 23-year-old male was arrested at the Highway 80 checkpoint after Wilcox Border Patrol agents discovered approximately 4.6 pounds of marijuana inside the young man's vehicle. The 23-year-old suspect is a U.S. citizen and is now facing federal prosecution.
The second discovery occurred Saturday after a Wilcox Station canine unit working at the Highway 80 checkpoint notified authorities to an SUV driven by a 20-year-old female traveling with her 4-year-old child. A secondary inspection of the vehicle using a canine unit uncovered six small bricks of marijuana, weighing a total of 8.4 pounds, inside a child's backpack. The child was turned over to the suspect's sister. The suspect herself, also a U.S. citizen, is now facing federal prosecution.
The big finding took place on Sunday, when a Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine helicopter crew responded to detection technology near Guvo, Arizona. At the scene agents discovered an abandoned SUV containing 1,830 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $915,000.
U.S.Customs and Border Protection welcomes assistance from the community. Citizens can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol by calling 1-877-872-7435 toll free. All calls will be answered and remain anonymous.
