A CBP officer noticed the young man displaying signs of nervousness, and requested a CBP officer with a human/narcotic detector dog screen the traveler and wheelchair. The dog alerted.

CBP officers conducted an intensive inspection, and discovered 3 packages hidden inside the seat of the wheelchair. The packages contained about five pounds of marijuana.

CBP officers seized the narcotics and wheelchair, and turned custody of the man over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. He was booked into the San Diego County Jail.
