TUCSON, AZ (CBS5) -

A Border Patrol K-9 team stopped the shipment of 2,133 pounds of marijuana at a border checkpoint south of Amado, Az.

The dogs, part of a Nogales border team, alerted to suspected narcotics in a semitrailer, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection authorities.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents referred the vehicle for a secondary inspection.

Through the use of detection technology, agents said they discovered 88 bundles of marijuana concealed in a false wall inside the tractor-trailer.

The driver, whose name was not released, was arrested and faces possible prosecution.

The narcotics were worth an estimated $1,066,500. The shipment was turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Residents can report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol and remain anonymous by calling 1-877-872-7435 toll free.
