Tijuana Police Seize Over 1 Ton of Marijuana
The Tijuana Municipal Police seized over 1 ton of marijuana from empty residences during raids late in the week. Both raids netted packaged and ready to ship marijuana.
In the first raid, which occurred in southeast Tijuana, 844.5 kilos (1,861.8 pounds) were found. An anonymous tip led to the raid on Thursday, April 5th about 10pm.
The second raid also occurred in southeast Tijuana, in the Maclovia Rojas colony. 180 kilos (396.83 pounds) were found in the second home on Saturday, April 7th. The raid also resulted from an anonymous tip.
Both residences were vacant and no arrests were made. The Mexican Army assisted in the larger bust, and federal prosecutors are looking into the case.
