Two Teens Caught Smuggling More Than 300 Pounds of Weed In Separate Attempts

Now that school is out for the summer, teens find themselves with more time on their hands. Apparently two teens living in the border town of Agua Prieta, Sonora, decided to find summer jobs smuggling dope over the border.

In two separate and unrelated seizures, U.S. Customs and Border Protection caught two 16-year-olds smuggling weed across the Port of Douglas in cars, both busts totaling more than 300 pounds.

Officers asked the first teenager -- neither of their names have been released -- to pull over for additional inspection. After investigating the Chevrolet truck, the CBP found 15 packages of weed, with an estimated cost of more than $120,000. Pictures taken by officers show the bales of contraband stuffed in the engine and behind what looks to be the back seat of the truck.

This leads us to believe that the 16-year-old could have applied himself more, should stay in school. Because although he, too, was unsuccessful, the second teen who attempted to sneak weed across the border that day gains a higher grade for preparation and concealment.

If cannabis is LEGAL, there is no reason to smuggle it. Derp!

in 1979 I managed the pizza hut in douglas,and half of my staff were teenagers that would carry bales of weed across the border,to pay for their cars and extras(pizza doesn't pay shit and was owned by a crook)

the people of douglas were the friendliest people I have ever met,the town was like mayberry south.

and then the war on drugs/people.

funny thing was their biggest worry at the time was all the Iranians going to Cochise college of aviation during the hostage taking in iran.

btw The article makes no mention of the smugglers race but being that they are from Agua Prieta the odds are not leaning in favor of your claim!!!

Francisco...And yet another Mexican (or 20) are crossing the border with back packs full of drugs as we speak!! I'll acknowledge these kids are criminals who need to be punished..and they will be. But lets not get all stupid and imply the illegal drug trade is being led by 16 year old white kids. That was an absurd comment!!! Mexican Drug Cartels using Mexican Nationals is how 75% of the drugs enter this country.

While these criminals take the easy road to big money, another Mexican is doing the jobs these teenagers refuse to do.

Just another incident showing the ridiculousness of the War on Drugs.

Well, hehe, teenagers coming across the border in beat-up old trucks... what on Earth was CBP supposed to think? But what amazes me as much is hiding your stash on top of the engine. What does burning meth smell like, I wonder?

@Flyer9753 @eric.nelson745 Oh, my bad. So the twinks were driving beat-up old trucks with weed resting on the engine. Such brilliance. I'm surprised the border guards weren't wiped out by the smoke. There had to be some. Sitting right on top of the engine, those bundles of mj must have at least started to ignite.

LOL I know, I was thinking the same when I saw the pics - how the hell could the even drive it and how the hell did the pot not burn up from the heat, or at least smell really powerfully no matter how well wrapped/sealed.
