U.S. Border Patrol seizes 1,150 pounds of Marijuana

OCOTILLO, Calif. — On Saturday night, at approximately 6:30 p.m., El Centro Station Border Patrol agents were patrolling the mountainous desert region in the vicinity of Ocotillo, Calif. when they encountered an abandoned maroon pick-up truck loaded with approximately 1,150 pounds of marijuana.

El Centro Station agents also found evidence for a group of individuals returning to Mexico from the abandoned vehicle.  The vehicle contained 99 individually packaged bundles of marijuana with an estimated value of more than $925,000.  The marijuana and the vehicle were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Chief Patrol Agent Jeffrey A. Calhoon stated that he believes that seizures such as this contribute to the safety of our country.

“The agents of the El Centro Sector take on the responsibility to secure our nation’s borders and we strive to provide that everyday”, he said.

Two words: Jury Nullification Anyone who is on a jury in a marijuana case should refuse to convict. Send a message to the government that marijuana laws are unjust
You don’t have to wait until the next election to be heard.
