Stan, we came back from San Antonio last week with the TT and they waved us through on the U.S. side. The Mexican side was a quick inspection and the officer actually said, "Would you invite me into your house?"
Even with this incident in the OP, I don't see a big issue. JMHO
I HOPE, ( may be wistful thinking) that there won't be too much of a problem going south. Those going before Oct 27th please keep us posted. If they search every rig, with about 20 of us on the La Penita express we may get there around the 1st of December.( That last was sarcasm and humor, OK)

An American couple was arrested on Wednesday on a highway in the Mexican state of Sinaloa (northwest) the discovery of carrying two tons of marijuana in a car type trailer, reported Thursday a police authority.
The couple, he 38 and she 46, they had an accident and overturned the vehicle in a road point located at the height of the tourist resort of Los Mochis (Sinaloa),
Federal police arrived to the scene who inspected the vehicle and found a compartment in the ceiling that contained "962 packages, same as throwing a total weight of 2 thousand kilos 018 grams of marijuana," reported the Secretariat (Ministry) of Public Security in Mexico a statement.
The accident injured Americans non-serious, told AFP a spokesman for the secretariat.
Both detainees reported being residents of the U.S. city of San Diego (California, southwestern), Mexico's border with Tijuana (northwest).
Sinaloa is one of Mexico's northern states where there are marijuana and poppy plantations. It is also the birthplace of the cartel led by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, considered the most powerful drug lord in Mexico.
In the state of Sonora (northwest), neighboring Sinaloa, were arrested in September three Americans who concealed 60 kilograms of marijuana in the tires of the truck which meant crossing the border into California, as reported by the Secretariat of Public Security .
In addition to road authorities have detected in recent years the use of tunnels, trains and even catapults to carry drugs from Mexico to the U.S., the world's top consumer.
In Mexico, where the government maintains a military offensive against drugs, was recorded in October last year a seizure of more than 134 tons of marijuana, the largest in history.
