NOGALES, Ariz. -- Federal authorities say a Mexican man is accused of trying to smuggle nearly 80 fraudulent credit cards into southern Arizona.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers were conducting an inspection of a tourist bus at the Dennis DeConcini Port in Nogales.

They selected 23-year-old Leonardo Daniel Robles Castro of Hermosillo, Sonora, for further inspection.

During the search, CBP officers say they found and seized two packages containing a total of 79 counterfeit credit cards along with a fraudulent driver's license.

Authorities say Robles was arrested and referred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
