Citizen Staff Writer

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents interrupted a marijuana smuggling scheme involving more than 2 tons of marijuana stored at three houses in the Tucson area.

At least one house was located on the Tohono O’odham Nation near Tucson, according to the Tucson Sector of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Agents went to the home “in response to reports of an overwhelming smell of marijuana coming from the residence,” a news release from agency said.

Four individuals were arrested and remained in custody Thursday. They were not identified by authorities. Agents seized 4,100 pounds of bundled marijuana with an estimated street value of $3.3 million. They also seized rifles, two all-terrain vehicles and a radio scanner, the release states.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
