CALEXICO — U.S. Customers Service inspectors at the downtown Port of Entry here arrested a 20-year-old Sacramento man after they seized a truck packed with 1,000 pounds of marijuana Sunday night.
A press release from the Customs Service stated the seizure was made about 9 p.m. as the pickup's driver, Dewayne Joseph Ricks, was attempting to cross into the U.S.
Ricks appeared nervous when he told inspectors he had nothing to declare stated the press release.
A Customs canine unit then alerted inspectors of the possibility of narcotics in the vehicle. An inspector also noticed an abnormally high reading on a portable density meter when he placed it near one of the side panels of the vehicle.
