5,000 pounds of pot, worth $4 million, seized [AZ]

5,000 pounds of pot, worth $4 million, seized
August 22, 2005 - yumasun.com

The Border Patrol on Monday made what it called the largest single marijuana seizure along Yuma County's border with Mexico - almost 5,000 pounds of marijuana worth nearly $4 million.

The seizure, made near Avenue 1E, is the largest "ever" in the Yuma area, said Michael Gramley, spokesman for the patrol's Yuma sector. He added that the current fiscal year is shaping up to be a record year for marijuana seizures in the sector, thanks in part to additional Border Patrol agents assigned here.

Agents arrested four men and one 17-year-old male, all illegal immigrants from Mexico, in connection with the seizure, Gramley said.

Agents observed two vehicles, a 2003 Dodge Ram pickup reportedly stolen from Tempe and a 2005 Ford F350 pickup truck reportedly stolen from San Diego, cross the border at approximately 2 a.m. near Avenue 1E, Gramley said.

Agents used spike strips to stop the trucks, which both got stuck in the sand as a result, Gramley said.

Border Patrol agents found 2,159 pounds of marijuana valued at $1.7 million in the Dodge truck and 2,713 pounds of marijuana valued at $2.1 million in the Ford, Gramley said.

Gramley said two men who were in the Dodge and the two men and the teenager who were in the Ford fled on foot but all five were apprehended.

All five are slated to appear in federal court today to face drug-trafficking charges.

Monday's seizure also brings the total amount of marijuana seized in the Yuma sector by the Border Patrol since October 2004 to a new record high - 33,923 pounds valued at $27.1 million, compared to 27,856 pounds valued at $22.2 million seized in all of 2004, according to statistics by the Border Patrol. The sector extends from the California border to the Yuma-Pima county line.

Gramley attributed the record setting marijuana seizures to the 100 additional Border Patrol agents who recently were assigned to the sector.
