A 46-year-old Phoenix man was arrested Monday for attempting to smuggle nearly 42 pounds of cocaine into the U.S., Customs and Border Protection officers said.
Officers and a detection K-9 discovered 16 packages of drugs throughout the pickup driven by Martin De La Torre Dominguez.
The drugs were valued at more than $378,000.
The drugs and vehicle were seized. De La Torre was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
