Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of Nogales arrested a 28-year-old Mexican man Wednesday for attempting to smuggle 23 pounds of fentanyl.

Officers at the Dennis DeConcini crossing referred the man for a secondary inspection of his Chevy SUV as he attempted to enter through the SENTRI lane. A CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the vehicle's dashboard area, where officers found the drugs behind the radio. The drugs are estimated to be worth approximately $378,000.

According to information posted on, Fentanyl is a potent synthetic opioid, prescribed for severe chronic pain, or breakthrough pain, to patients who are already receiving opioid medication. It is considered to be about 100 times more potent than morphine.

CBP officers seized the drugs, and turned the subject over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.

Officers with the Nogales Police Department seized roughly $173,000 this week after finding the money stashed in a box inside a pickup that had been impounded.

At about 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 27, an NPD transit officer pulled over a red 1992 Nissan pickup on southbound Interstate 19 near Kilometer 4 for two equipment violations, the department said in a news release.

After making contact with the adult female driver and running a record's check, it was revealed that the woman was driving on a suspended driver's license. The driver, 31-year-old Yanin Lorena Pintado of Rio Rico, was issued a citation and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days per Arizona state statutes.

While taking an inventory of the vehicle, which the department said is standard procedure when impounding a car, officers found a shoe box in the front passenger area containing small packages wrapped in tape. The packages contained large amounts of cash totaling $173,025.

"The manner in which the money was discovered indicated to officers it could be proceeds from illicit criminal activity," NPD said.

Pintado was subsequently arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of money laundering and driving with a suspended license. The report was referred to the Santa Cruz County Attorney's Office for prosecution, the department said.
