Men Busted Smuggling Drugs in Tortillas


TUCSON, AZ
Wednesday, December 7th, 2016

Officials at the Port of Nogales found tacos of a different kind in a recent border bust, according to Customs and Border Protection.

Two men, involved in attempts on separate weekends to sneak methamphetamine, were arrested in the scheme, on hiding contraband amongst stacks of tortillas. While I take my tortillas with cheese, chicken, and cilantro, the two men brought fillings that added up approximately $87,000 worth of the drug.

In one of the instances, officers working with a CBP narcotics-detection canine at the Morley Pedestrian crossing found almost three pounds of meth in packages of tortillas carried by a 62-year-old man from Nogales, Arizona, according to a press release.

In a separate instance the following weekend, $78,000 worth of meth (close to 26 pounds) was seized from a 23-year-old male U.S. citizen residing in Santana, Sonora, Mexico. Officers at the Dennis DeConcini crossing found it in the suspect’s Chevy SUV, and both men were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
