A tractor-trailer crossing the border in Nogales last week was discovered to be carrying over 2300 pounds of marijuana, hidden in amongst a shipment of peppers.  The Nogales US Customs and Border Protection became aware of the drugs after a canine narcotics detection officer alerted them.  The 27-year-old driver was taken into custody, and an investigation will certainly follow, possibly leading to more arrests.  Drug transportation, drug trafficking, and drug possession charges are not always on such a large scale as this.  It can take a lot less marijuana to be charged with these very serious charges, and not necessarily transporting across the border.
