A few hours later, a CBP narcotics detection canine at the DeConcini Crossing alerted to a Honda sedan crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. The 21-year-old Phoenix man was questioned about the contents of his vehicle before officers removed two packages of drugs from the vehicle’s rear tires. The drugs were identified as approximately 15 pounds of meth, worth nearly $45,000.

That evening, officers at the Mariposa Crossing referred a 24-year-old Mexican national for further inspection of her Ford compact sedan. After a CBP canine alerted to the presence of drugs inside of her vehicle, officers removed 71 packages of hard drugs. Seized were more than 18 pounds of cocaine, worth more than $434,000; more than 64 pounds of meth, worth $192,456; more than 9 pounds of heroin, worth almost $245,000 and nearly 2 pounds of suspected fentanyl pills, with an estimated value of $27,000.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicles. The subjects were arrested and then turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

Individuals arrested may be charged by complaint, the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity, which raises no inference of guilt.  An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
