Federal authorities have arrested a U.S. citizen on suspicion of attempting to smuggle more than 250 pounds of marijuana through the Port of Douglas.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers apprehended the 19-year-old man after a CBP narcotics detection K-9  alerted officers to 37 packages of marijuana.

The pot was found stashed in the engine compartment and behind the seats of his pickup truck.

The drugs, valued at nearly $127,000, and vehicle were processed for seizure.

The man was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
