Federal agents seize ton of marijuana in Nogales

    NOGALES, AZ - Federal agents intercepted more than 2,300 pounds of marijuana following a traffic stop in Nogales.

    Special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations seized some of the drugs Wednesday after stopping a cargo van for a traffic violation in an area known for smuggling.

    A search of the van turned up 12 boxes containing more than 930 pounds of marijuana. The van's two occupants were arrested.

    Information provided by the suspects led agents to a warehouse, where a search led to the seizure of an additional 1,370 pounds of marijuana. A third person was arrested at the warehouse.

    Authorities say drug trafficking charges are currently pending against all three suspects as the investigation continues.

    My name is Jason Jones. I'm from Rochester, MN and I'm 35 years old. I scrap metal and work as grounds keeper at a local trailer park. In the winter, I shovel a bunch of driveways and sidewalks to make some extra money and to stay busy. In my free time, I try to find interesting articles about the war on drugs that I can post on Drugs-Forum, so that the information can reach a wider audience.

    Why is it that I read so often where people are arrested, and they continue to talk only getting their self and others into more trouble. What part of "You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be held against you in the court of law", do they not understand? With Harm Reduction in mind it is not in anyone's favor to continue to speak with the police after being placed under arrest. This should only be done with an attorney present.

    For those that think they can out wit and officer with words, they need to look at the odds of this turning out in their favor. The police play this game daily and take classes to prefect their game. They are trained to talk proof and evidence out of you. Now weigh what ever your training in the matters you have, against theirs.

    In the cited article above, the suspects talked their way into an enhancing mitigating factor, and charges being filed against another person. Even if you are going to stoop so low as to work with the police in order to lighten your sentence. The police can not make this deal, only the prosecutor can, and you need representation when the deal is made. I really wish anyone facing this situation would sit down and have a moral judgement of their self before making such a decision.
