LUKEVILLE, Ariz. -— An Ajo man has been arrested for
allegedly attempting to smuggle more than 102 pounds of
marijuana into southern Arizona through the Lukeville Port.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say 33-year-old
Stoney Womack was taken into custody Thursday.

CBP officers referred Womack for a secondary inspection of
his van. During secondary inspection, officers found 81
packages of marijuana worth an estimated $51,000.

Womack has been turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

The vehicle and drugs were processed for seizure.
