Presidio CBP Officers Seize 161 Pounds of Marijuana


Presidio CBP officers made a big drug bust on Halloween Day.

CBP authorities tell NewsWest 9, the seizure was made just before 3 p.m. Saturday when a lone female driving a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica applied for entry at the main inspection station.

We’re told an officer noticed some inconsistencies in the driver’s itinerary and the vehicle for a secondary inspection.

Further investigation revealed anomalies in the rear quarter panels, fuel tank and dashboard.

Authorities say a total of 144 bundles were removed from the vehicle and tested positive for the properties of marijuana.

The driver, a 44-year-old woman from Mexico, was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement HSI Agents for the failed smuggling attempt.
