TUCSON, Ariz. –U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Arizona’s Port of Nogales arrested two Mexican nationals involved in separate failed smuggling attempts of methamphetamine, fentanyl, oxycodone, and heroin into the United States over the weekend.

Officers at the DeConcini Crossing referred a 38-year-old male for further inspection of his Saturn sedan Friday afternoon. Following a positive alert from a CBP canine, officers seized more than 21 pounds of cocaine from the vehicle’s firewall, worth an estimated $239,200.

The article goes on to state the following:

On Saturday, CBP officers at the Mariposa Commercial Facility referred a 65-year-old man for further inspection of the tractor-trailer he was driving into the United States from Mexico. A CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to an odor it was trained to detect, leading to the discovery of more than 364 pounds of meth, worth almost $1,092,300; six pounds of heroin, worth more than $100,000; almost 7 pounds of fentanyl, worth more than $95,000; and 6,000 suspected oxycodone pills, with a value of nearly $113,000.

The second seizure is the third largest seizure of its kind by a CBP port of entry in Arizona.

Officers seized the drugs and both vehicles, trailer, and commodity. Both subjects were arrested and then turned over to Homeland Security Investigations.

    I use to watch the “Border Wars” show and they are eye opening. I think their shows are on Youtube. I had seen them on my cable but they quit showing them.
