On Sunday evening, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents from the Douglas Station seized an SUV loaded with more than 1,000 pounds of cannabis following a pursuit 5 miles east of the Douglas, Arizona city limits.


Agents patrolling a desolate area were alerted to a suspicious vehicle spotted by another agent operating surveillance technology. The vehicle, a Chevy Tahoe, was traveling north from the international boundary. When one agent pulled alongside the vehicle to speak to the driver, the driver abruptly turned around and fled toward Mexico.


Agents attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver didn’t stop until reaching the border. At that point, the driver and passenger absconded into Mexico on foot.


When agents looked in the vehicle, they saw large bundles of marijuana later determined to be worth more than half a million dollars.
