U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers stopped a drug-smuggling attempt when they seized 6 large paintings with the frames full of packages of marijuana. On April 3 at about 8:30 p.m., CBP Officers selected a large van driven by a 55-year-old man from Phoenix for a routine inspection. CBP Officers became suspicious when a special K-9 team alerted to 6 large paintings that were being transported in the back of the van. The paintings were professionally done with very nicely constructed frames. An x-ray of the large frames revealed packages concealed within the frames. More than 90 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $153,000 were removed from the 6 large painting frames.(via Douglas Dispatch)
