Truckers arrested for hauling drugs

On April 28,2017, a 35-year-old truck driver was arrested by Maryland state tropper after 29.4 kilograms, or 64.7 pounds, of hydroponic marijuana allegedly were found in a truck he drove across Omaha to Maryland.
The trucker, whose name Gilbert Susbilla, was arrested on U.S. federal charges alleging importation and possession with the intent to distribute a controlled substance, said Kevin Corsaro, chief customs and officer for the Baltimore MD., field office.
Officials said the extra load on the truck was discovered by gamma-ray Technology.
The scan produced a high-resolution image of the truck’s contents and displayed an anomaly that was inconsistent with a load of steel.
A physical inspection of the load turned up three undeclared large plastic bags containing 124 vacuum-sealed bags of pot.
“The marijuana seized … has a street value of approximately $200,000,” said Corsaro.
