(Border Patrol finds stolen items)….Three are arrested.
The 3 were in a van that had entered the Interstate 8 Checkpoint near Campo. The van was sent to the secondary inspection area. During the inspection, agents found marijuana in the handbag of a 26-year-old woman in the van. That is not all. Agents also found computers, projectors, a speaker system, a DVD player and a Sony Playstation 4. The electronics were all found in unopened packaging. The 42-year-old driver of the van confessed to agents that he had not paid for the items. With the help of a loss-prevention system in a nearby store, the agents were able to determine the electronics had been stolen from stores in El Centro and Yuma. The items were valued at $10,000. The 3 occupants of the van, two men and a woman, were arrested and charged with transporting stolen items.
