Agents confiscate pot, liquor, avocados
Daniel Borunda; El Paso Times
An attempt to smuggle 3.4 pounds of marijuana, 10 undeclared liquor bottles and 10 avocados with seeds was stopped Saturday night at the Bridge of the Americas, said U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.
A California resident was arrested for the marijuana, and the owner of the liquor and avocados was fined $390. Both smugglers were in the same Ford pickup.
<sarcasm> I find it reassuring to know that avocado smuggling isn't being ignored amidst all the hubub surrounding the wars on drugs and terrorism. </sarcasm>
