Phoenix Man Caught Smuggling RV Full of Cannabis from Mexico

January 4, 2018


Over the weekend, Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of Lukeville in Arizona arrested a Phoenix man attempting to smuggle more than a ton of marijuana via RV.

Saturday afternoon, officers referred a 55-year-old man for further inspection of his motor-home as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. After a drug-sniffing dog alerted officers to the cannabis odor it was trained to detect, they removed more than 120 massive bundles of marijuana from the storage compartments, walls, and floor of the camper. The marijuana seized weighed just under 2,448 pounds and is estimated to be worth nearly $1,224,000.


Officers arrested the subject and turned him over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. Officers also seized the weed and the RV.
