TUCSON, Ariz. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations, officers at the Port of Nogales seized 46 pounds of cocaine and methamphetamine on Thursday. Officers at the Dennis DeConcini Crossing referred a 26-year-old Tucson man for further inspection of his Dodge sedan as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico on Thursday morning. After a CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of a scent it was trained to detect, officers removed 10 packages of cocaine from within the vehicle’s rear quarter panels and rear bumper. The packages weighed more than 26 pounds, worth nearly $360,000. Earlier on the same day, officers at the DeConcini Crossing referred a 19-year-old Nogales, Arizona woman for an additional inspection of her Ford sedan when she attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. An alert by a CBP canine led officers to the car’s spare tire, where they removed nearly 20 packages of drugs from inside. The packages were determined to be nearly 18 pounds of meth, worth almost $16,000. That afternoon, officers at the Morley Pedestrian Gate referred a 20-year-old man from La Puente, California for further questioning, following a positive alert by a CBP canine. When he was searched, officers removed two packages of meth that were taped to the subject’s thighs. The drugs weighed nearly 2 pounds and have an estimated value of almost $1,800. Officers seized the vehicles and drugs, while the subjects were arrested and then turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. Individuals arrested may be charged by complaint, the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity, which raises no inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
