DOUGLAS - A 15-year-old boy was caught trying to smuggle bundles of marijuana hidden under his clothes across the border.

Agents were screening travelers on Tuesday when they noticed the teen was walking very oddly and was wearing bulky clothes. He was later identified as a United States citizen from Douglas.

During their search agents discovered 3 packages of pot taped to the teen's inner thighs with a street value of more than $3,600. The drugs were seized and the boy was released to his family.
