Adding Value?

It appears one trucker’s idea of adding value to a lumber delivery fell short of it’s goal. The Arizona Daily Star reports here that more than 600 pounds of marijuana hidden in a load of plywood was seized by Border Patrol agents.  The truck’s driver, a 21-year old U.S. citizen who appeared to be lost, approached agents and asked for directions. His actions aroused suspicions. While it’s perhaps not unusual for truckers to get lost and even arouse suspicions when they ask for directions, it’s not so common for their loads to be inspected by drug-sniffing dogs, as was the case here. The Star reports value of drugs seized to be $310,500.
Even in these times of what some might call heady pricing, it’s suspected the delivery of wood was comparably less valuable.
