Immigration agent accused of pot smuggling in Ariz.

By Michael Winter, USA TODAY
Updated 10h 45m ago A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent has been charged with drug smuggling after a high-speed desert chase during which he allegedly threw bundles of marijuana out of his government vehicle, the Associated Press reports.

Jason Alistair Lowery, 34, of Chandler is a deportation officer who had been under surveillance for more than a month, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said. A smuggler tipped authorities to get lenient treatment.

Lowery was arrested Tuesday after a 45-minute chase that reached 110 mph. State police said that he threw 10 of 14 bundles of pot out his truck and that he was taking the marijuana to a drug cartel distributor in Arizona City.

Along with Lowery, Joshua Duane Powell, 33, was jailed in Pinal County. State police found 14 rifles and guns in the trunk of his car, seven of which had been reported stolen.
