On Tuesday, August 26, 2014, a Dodge sport utility vehicle attempted to pass through the Port of Douglas in Arizona. When U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers referred the vehicle for further inspection, a canine sniff gave a positive alert for the presence of narcotics.
A pursuant search of the SUV led to the discovery of 152 packages of marijuana hidden throughout the vehicle. The estimated street value of this find is $102,000.
The driver, a 23-year-old Mexican female, was arrested and turned over to Homeland Security Investigations. Her drugs and vehicle were seized.
