Big Pot Busts Up At Nogales Border Crossing
Large scale marijuana seizures at the Mariposa Port of entry in Nogales are up this year.
Customs and Border Patrol agents stopped an Arizona-bound tractor-trailer on Thursday. It was carrying $4.5 million worth of marijuana hidden in a shipment of pumps and machinery.
According to the Nogales International newspaper that was at least the sixth incident at the Mariposa port so far in 2016 in which authorities discovered a marijuana load valued at more than $1 million. That’s the same number of million-dollar busts reported at the facility in all of 2015.
