TUCSON, AZ - U.S. Border Patrol agents working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection recovered over $3.6 million of marijuana over 48 hours in central and southern Arizona earlier this week.

According to a U.S. Border Patrol news release, on Tuesday June 1st, Office of Air and Marine Interdiction officers noticed two suspicious vehicles covered with tarps while on patrol near Stanfield, west of Casa Grande.

When agents from the Casa Grande Station arrived for support, they found two stolen pickup trucks containing 159 bundles of marijuana.

On Wednesday, a canine team alerted to contraband at the Willcox Station at the Highway 90 checkpoint in southeastern Arizona.

Agents searched the vehicle and found 200 pounds of marijuana concealed in a compartment.

The vehicle was seized and the driver was detained by agents.

Thursday morning, agents working the Sonoita Station, south of Tucson, spotted a group of suspected undocumented immigrants with a hand held infrared camera.

When agents arrived in the area, they found 20 abandoned bundles of marijuana in scrub brush. The drugs weighed in at over 980 pounds and was valued at more than $780,000.

No suspects were found.

Hey, maybe we have found a simple way to fund the mass deportation of the criminal invaders!

All that hooch could be sold instead of being destroyed and all the pro-illegal traitors would have to shut up about deportations being too expensive, once and for all.
