Drug Smuggler Straps 20,000 Fentanyl Pills To Legs And Attempts To Enter Country At Arizona-Mexico Border

A drug smuggler tried to use their legs in more ways than one to get narcotics across the Arizona-Mexico border earlier this week.

On Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers noticed something strange about a person walking across the border at the Nogales Port of Entry. After a search, officers found nearly 20,000 fentanyl pills strapped to the person’s legs, according to Port Director Michael W. Humphries. The suspect was taken into custody.

Humphries also said on Wednesday, a driver tried to smuggle about 446,200 fentanyl pills hidden in the trunk of a car.
