The CBP officer inspecting the vehicle noticed luggage in the rear of the vehicle during a trunk exam and referred the vehicle for further inspection. When the vehicle was searched by CBP officers, a brown suitcase was found to contain coffee grinds surrounding vacuum sealed bags with a green leafy substance.
All 20 vacuum sealed bags tested positive for marijuana. Often coffee grinds are used in an attempt to mask the potent marijuana smell. The approximate weight of the marijuana was 23 pounds.
Rodger was arrested by CBP officers and turned over to the custody of the Buffalo Police Department for prosecution.
