A Whole New Meaning To...Drive The Truck, Dale.....

DPS Seizes 2,118 lbs. of Marijuana from Cloned UPS Truck
Street Value of Marijuana Worth Nearly $1.2 Million

Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) Detectives assigned to the Pima County Counter Narcotics Alliance (CNA) conducted an investigation which resulted in the seizure of about 2,118 pounds of marijuana from a cloned United Parcel Service (UPS) truck.

When a DPS officer and narcotics canine attempted to stop the truck, a suspect fled from the vehicle. A search of the truck found bundles of marijuana which were attached to burlap straps that human drug carriers known as "mules" use to carry the loads through the desert.

The suspects painted the truck to look similar to a UPS vehicle and attached reflective yellow decals as an authorized UPS truck would appear. The truck displayed a homemade Arizona license plate and the number was assigned to an actual UPS truck in Phoenix that services the Tucson area.

The investigation is still ongoing.

I know there was something wrong with my tracking number, I guess I can stop waiting for UPS to come.

Actually a fairly cunning little plan. Did they mention just how long it had delivered prior to getting caught?


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
