Two Teens Caught Smuggling More Than 300 Pounds of Weed In Separate Attempts

Now that school is out for the summer, teens find themselves with more time on their hands. Apparently two teens living in the border town of Agua Prieta, Sonora, decided to find summer jobs smuggling dope over the border.

In two separate and unrelated seizures, U.S. Customs and Border Protection caught two 16-year-olds smuggling weed across the Port of Douglas in cars, both busts totaling more than 300 pounds.
