DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) - Customs and Border Patrol says a smuggling attempt was thwarted when 213 pounds of marijuana were found inside the tires of a vehicle at the Douglas port of entry.

CBP says the marijuana with an estimated street value of $106,500 was found in all five of the vehicles’ tires during an inspection Friday.

A 31-year-old man from the Mexican border city of Agua Prieta who was driving the vehicle was arrested. The man’s identity was not released.
