Rookie border agents seize pot near border

August 31, 2007|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Seven rookie Border Patrol agents seized nearly a ton of marijuana from three vehicles abandoned near the U.S.-Mexico border. The agents, who graduated this month from the Border Patrol academy, spotted two sport-utility vehicles and a pickup early Wednesday heading north from the border near the Tecate crossing, about 40 miles east of San Diego.

Other Border Patrol agents in the area were called to join in pursuit of the caravan, which turned back toward Mexico, an agency spokesman said. No arrests were made.
