Ariz. border patrol officers foil marijuana smuggling attempt

DOUGLAS, Ariz. — AZFamily says a Mexican national was arrested Tuesday for attempting to smuggle nearly 141 pounds of marijuana in a truck camper through the Port of Douglas, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Officers referred the driver for further inspection. After a narcotics-detection dog alerted to the roof of a camper shell on the truck bed, officers located and removed 117 packages of marijuana worth more than $70,000, writes AZFamily.

The arrest came just one day after officers arrested two women for attempting to smuggle a combined 432 pounds of marijuana through the port.
