Border Patrol Finds Nearly 70 Pounds Of Pot In Casket
(Tombstone, AZ) -- Drug charges are being filed after Border Patrol agents found nearly 70 pounds of pot in a casket. Officers in Tombstone, Arizona say the bust went down Saturday night when several red flags were found in a hearse at an immigration checkpoint. A K-9 unit sniffed out more than 30-thousand dollars worth of pot and one man was taken into custody. The casket had manure in bags in it in order to help mask the smell. GEE, Mr. Dope Smuggler, think that may have been a clue? Coffee, try coffee…and you don’t have to endure the odor of the poo!
