Feds seize 10 tons of marijuana at Arizona border

NOGALES, Ariz. -- Federal officials are reporting a record seizure of marijuana at an Arizona crossing on the U.S.-Mexico border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have scheduled a Tuesday afternoon news conference to provide details on the seizure of more than 10 tons of marijuana at the Mariposa port of entry on the outskirts of Nogales.

That busy crossing point is used by commercial traffic, including trucks hauling Mexican produce into the United States.

According to the CPB, the haul surpassed the previous record seizure in Arizona of 14,121 pounds, or slightly over 7 tons, of marijuana on Jan. 15.

The agency said the marijuana is valued at more than $10.1 million.
