Midshipman Accused of Drug Smuggling

Charges against the Naval Academy student have not been preferred

A junior at the U.S. Naval Academy has been detained for allegedly bringing 150 pounds of marijuana into the United States from Mexico, according to Navy officials.
The 24-year-old midshipman is being held in the brig in San Diego and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is investigating, said Navy Region Southwest spokesman Doug Sayers. He also said U.S. Customs officials pulled over the midshipman, whose name was not released, on June 10 at the re-entry point at San Ysidro, Calif., just north of the Mexican border.
"Charges have not been preferred," Sayers said.
