PRESIDIO - Customs and Border Protection officers seized more than 70 pounds of marijuana on Friday at the Presidio Port of Entry.
We’re told the seizure was made Friday morning when a 2006 Dodge Stratus entered the port from Mexico.
Officers selected the vehicle for a secondary examination.
After an X-Ray scan, they found an anomaly in the front dashboard of the car and that’s where they found several marijuana filled bundles hidden inside the dashboard.
The driver of the vehicle, 22-year-old Rito Rodriguez Reyes of Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico, was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement HSI Special Agents and arrested on importation of controlled substance and possession with intent to distribute charges.
