NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) - Officers from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Field Operations have seized over $2.3 million worth of marijuana in one shipment.

A Mexican man tried bringing the 4,661 pounds of pot through the new Mariposa Cargo Facility at the port of entry in Nogales on Friday.

Officers say Carlos Munoz-Munoz, 35, was driving a tractor-trailer with the hidden marijuana. A K-9 sniffed the drugs during an inspection.

The large seizure is worth over $2.3 million, according to a news release.
