NOGALES, AZ - A 44-year-old man was arrested Friday for allegedly attempting to smuggle more than 2,000 pounds of marijuana into the United States.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of Mariposa Commercial Facility used an x-ray scanner to discover the drugs, which were concealed in a shipment of 1,000 bags of charcoal.
