Border Patrol Agents in Tucson Seize $1.7 Million in Marijuana

U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Sector foiled three separate smuggling attempts yesterday, netting more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana with an estimated value of $1.7 million.

Two of the incidents occurred within eight hours of each other in the Nogales Station’s area of responsibility. In the morning hours, an agent operating a Mobile Surveillance System detected a suspicious vehicle in a remote area 10 miles east of Nogales. Agents responded and encountered an abandoned truck containing 38 bundles of marijuana weighing more than 1,000 pounds. The bundles, valued at more than $858,000, were taken to the Nogales Station for processing. The agent operating the MSS reported seeing two occupants exit the vehicle and flee into Mexico.
