32 pounds of coke found in car

NOGALES - A male Mexican national was arrested Thursday at the Port of Nogales for attempting to smuggle nearly 32 pounds of cocaine into the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers referred the 21-year-old man for an additional inspection of his Toyota sedan at the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry. After a CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs under the vehicle's back seat and in the trunk, officers removed 10 packages of cocaine worth almost $287,000.

The drugs and vehicle were processed for seizure. The subject was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
