NOGALES, AZ (CBS5) -
In two separate border crossings only a few hours apart, U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized more than 425 pounds of marijuana and seven pounds of methamphetamine from two individuals attempting to enter the United States from Mexico.
The two incidents took place at the Mariposa Port of Entry in Nogales around midday.
The first discovery occurred after officers detained Juan Marcelo Armstrong, 24, of Tucson, for additional inspection as he attempted to enter the United States. A narcotics detection canine searching the vehicle alerted CBP authorities to the presence of drugs. More than 425 pounds of marijuana were discovered in a shipment of piñatas in the bed of the vehicle.
The second incident took place just a few hours later after officers referred Pedro de Jesus Magana-Caballero, 28, Sonora, Mexico, for additional inspection of his vehicle as he attempted to enter the U.S. Again, a narcotics detection canine searching the vehicle alerted CBP authorities to the presence of drugs. A package was discovered in the oil pan of the vehicle containing approximately seven pounds of methamphetamine.
In both cases the individuals were arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations, while the drugs and vehicles were processed for seizure.
