U.S. Customs and Border Patrol

TUCSON, Ariz. –U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Arizona’s Port of Nogales apprehended a Mexican national involved in connection with a failed attempt to smuggle fentanyl into the United States Thursday.

Officers at the Mariposa Crossing referred a 44-year-old Mexican woman for further inspection of her Nissan SUV. A search led to the discovery of nearly 7.5 pounds of fentanyl, worth more than $117,000, inside of a backpack.  

Officers seized the drugs as well as the vehicle. The subject was arrested and then turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

  1. This is just one of the many who smuggle drugs across the legal border crossings. I’;m sure half the wetbacks sneaking over the border are carrying cargo that will get them “hooked up” financially once they’re here, and collecting welfare too.

  2. Nissan….

    Built Ford Tough.

    If Nissan can prosper after Hiroshima and Fukishima.

    We certainly can guarantee customers safety and reliability when transporting fenten y’all.

    The next model will be able to transport scopalmine and heroin to your showroom.

    Check out the new 2018 model.

    Oh… and fk Toyota.
