Customs officers at Dulles International Airport said they seized a second load of marijuana this week stashed almost identically to a load of weed recovered last week that was destined for the same European country.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection said officers at Dulles discovered 326 grams of weed stored in 93 tins, packed inside three parcels and addressed to three different locations in Belgium on Tuesday.
The packages arrived at Dulles from a West Hollywood, Califoria, location, CBP said.
The hidden arrangement also matched a discovery of 325 grams of marijuana that CBP officers made on June 2.[[508917102, C]]
During that first seizure, officers found the weed stored in 31 tins in three different packages.
"Shippers of illicit contraband sometimes attempt a similar export method, and when they do, CBP officers are there to intercept the load,” Casey Durst, a CBP field operations director, said. "Our officers’ dedication and vigilance are commendable, and were instrumental in intercepting these illegal narcotics."
