    Thumbs up U.S. Customs seize drugs in gas tank in Detroit

    Detroit – U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers at the Detroit Canada Tunnel discovered 35 pounds of marijuana inside the gas tank of a vehicle attempting to make entry into the U.S. on Thursday.
    A 1999 Dodge Durango, being driven by a 35-year-old female, a Canadian citizen from Windsor, Ontario, was entering the United States at approximately 1:30 p.m. When Customs and Border Protection
    officers approached the vehicle and were told by the driver that she was going to the airport to take a flight to Mississippi and visit her boyfriend. The inspecting officers selected the vehicle for further inspection and referred it to the CBP secondary area.
    The physical inspection of the vehicle revealed a trap door in the floor. Opening the door revealed several vacuum-sealed bags containing a green leafy substance. Officers removed the bags, 32 in all, and field tested the contents with a positive result for marijuana.
    A total of 35 pounds of marijuana was removed from the vehicle. The driver, drugs and vehicle were turned over to officers from a local drug task force. The driver was eventually released pending further investigation. CBP refused her entry to the country, revoked her visa and returned her to Canada.
    “The officers conducting this inspection paid attention to the small details that lead them to this marijuana.” stated Port Director Roderick Blanchard. “While we have not found a lot of gas tank loads in our area it is one of several methods used by drug traffickers to smuggle drugs across the border.”
