CBP intercepts 3 pistols hidden in luxury SUV
A luxury SUV crossing into Mexico through the Port of Nogales contained a few extras Wednesday, when Customs and Border Protection officers found three pistols hidden beneath the driver's seat, authorities said.
The driver, a 37-year-old Mexican man was arrested after CBP officers found two 9mm Berettas and a .38-caliber Colt in an hidden compartment beneath the driver's seat of his orange Audi Crossover, said Rob Daniels, a CBP spokesman.
The weapons were found wrapped in green plastic, with single ammunition magazines for each.
Officers seized the vehicle and the pistols, and handed the man over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
