NOGALES - Border Patrol agents discovered 86 bundles of marijuana in an SUV with bogus government plates.
In a release from US Customs and Border Protection, agents in the Nogales area say they attempted to make contact with a driver of a white Chevy Tahoe with government license plates.
The driver fled instead, abandoning the white Chevy Tahoe near the border and escaping across the desert.
In a separate incident at the I-19 checkpoint, agents discovered an illegal immigrant in the trunk of a vehicle.
