Much at stake for truckers caught hauling illegal drugs

Even as the federal government looks for ways to weed out truckers using drugs, cross-country truckers continue to get caught hauling cargo of an illegal nature — in very large quantities.

On May 20, a 26-year-old truck driver was arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents after 29.4 kilograms, or 64.7 pounds, of hydroponic marijuana allegedly were found in a truck he drove across the border from Canada.

The trucker, whose name was not disclosed, was arrested on U.S. federal charges alleging importation and possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance, said Kevin Corsaro, chief customs and border officer for the Buffalo, N.Y., field office. More from The Trucker
