Nogales CBP officers seize nearly $591K in cocaine

NOGALES - A Mexican national was busted yesterday at the Port of Nogales for trying to smuggle nearly 65 pounds of cocaine into the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers performed additional inspection of 61-year-old Gaston Delacruz Arriaga-Barrigan when he attempted to cross the border.

After a CBP narcotic detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs behind the passenger's side headlight, officers removed 27 packages of cocaine worth nearly $591,000.
