DPS seized 2,118 pounds of marijuana from a cloned UPS truckPosted on December 11, 2008
An investigation done by the Pima County Narcotics Alliance of Arizona's Department of Public Safety resulted in the seizure of 2,118 pounds of marijuana and a cloned UPS truck. A Department of Public Safety Canine officer attempted to stop the vehicle but when it came to a complete stop the driver fled from the truck. When the truck was searched they founds bundles of marijuana that still had the burlap back straps that are used by the human carriers to carry the drugs across the desert. The truck was painted to match the color of a UPS truck and contained yellow decals in the same areas as an authorized UPS truck. The truck also contained a homemade Arizona license plate and a plate number belonging to a authentic truck serving the Tucson area.
