PRESIDIO, TX (KWES) - United States Customs and Border Protection seized 94 pounds of marijuana Friday afternoon at the Presidio Port of Entry.
A drug dog handler picked the 2002 Ford Explorer for a secondary exam after it entered the port from Mexico.
The dog alerted officers to inspect the gas tank area of the car, where an x-ray then found several suspicious spots on the frame and around the gas tank. A total of 90 packages of marijuana were found.
The driver, Ricardo Marquez, 25, of Phoenix, Arizona was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement HSI agents.
