California man tried to sneak marijuana into airport
A California man was taken into custody Nov. 24 by Customs and Border Protection at Dulles International Airport after he tried to sneak 0.96 ounces of marijuana into the state.
Ryan Richard Davidson, 33, of Brea, arrived on a flight from Germany shortly before 9 p.m., and was referred to secondary inspection for a baggage exam. A thorough secondary exam of his luggage revealed a bag and a glass container with marijuana inside.
Davidson was turned over to the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority police department for criminal prosecution for possession of marijuana.
“We’ve sometimes observed how quickly a routine baggage exam can quickly turn into a more complex enforcement activity that uncovers illicit or prohibited products,” said Christopher Hess, CBP port director for the Port of Washington, D.C. “Customs and Border Protection officers are ever vigilant in preventing dangerous or illicit drugs from entering the United States.”
