Default Agriculture Inspections Intel?

Curious if anyone has come back home to Cali from Ore, Nev, or Ariz and can report activity or non-inspection activity at the Agriculture Checkpoints. Thanks.

Travelled from the Bay Area to southern Oregon and back twice a year for almost 40 years. Never once were we asked to pull over for an actual inspection.

Been through the 1 and I5 stations in NorCal a couple dozen times since 2015 and most times get waived through and only a couple times actually asked if I have any fruits/vegetables. I think only once a lady looked over the back of the truck since I had it piled high with construction debris from the new place. No issues. Usually hit the stations around mid-day to mid-afternoon. Can't recall anyone ever getting pulled over during those brief stops.

Came back on hwy 5 from Oregon a couple weeks ago. Two cases of ammo in the car. Stopped at Ag checkpoint, asked if I had any fruit or vegetables and sent on my way.

your inquiring about ag stops on a gun forum is what's suspicious.

I got questioned on 395 south from Gardnerville back into CA. They said my dogs looked suspicious and wondered what all the blankets were for. They pulled us over and then searched my vehicle asking if I purchased any ammo driving through Minden from the 2-3 gun stores along the route.

Luckily I hadn't and they said I could proceed on my way.

Made it through the Ag inspection a few weeks ago on the way home from Vegas with no issue. But once I got to Baker I was stopped by California DOJ Patrol units who spotted my Gadsen flag sticker and called it "reasonable suspicion" to search my Prius. Under the carpet by the spare tire, they found and seized a 50 round box of .22LR I bought at a North Las Vegas Big-5.

I got stopped in Needles at station and had 2 quartered skinned elk in back of Tahoe. Only question were where did we get them. We said NM and tags were on them. Did any of spine or head come with us.i said no we boned out neck and spine because of cwd rules. We left heads there and took the Ivories.

You should have had a Hillary 2016 bumper sticker. It puts you in stealth mode.

Seriously, late last June, I was going north on Interstate 15. At the ag checkpoint, there were guys in black shirts and slacks all over the place. Traffic was slow and there were mobile poles with some kinda black can thing in top pointing at traffic. A few cars ahead, they waved at a mini van to pull over. I watched as they opened the back and I saw it was full of illegal fireworks. Somebody had a very bad day.

I'm buying a house in Az and have come through the checkpoint on I10 5 times in the last 2 months and been waved through each time. I am seeing box trucks and cars with enclosed trailers being pulled over and the back door opened for the agents to look in.

I call BS. With that much your back bumper would have been dragging on the ground. Broken shocks and flattened springs.

1 9mm round = 10 grams x 50000 = 500000 gr = 500 kg = 1102.3113 lb

Donít know if my car could handle 1100 lb in the trunk.

Now 50k of .22LR is 330 lb. That might be doable.

Came through the I-15 station from Vegas in the afternoon on 4/19. Waved through.

The new station at state line is coming along. 6 lanes and 4 bays for further inspection.

Huh...you let non-LEOís search your vehicle? That was nice of you.

I pass through the I-5 Ag inspection station at least once a month coming back from shooting USPSA matches in Medford with hundreds of rounds of ammo, PCC rig, mags, etc.

I also pass through the one outside is Alturus about half a dozen times a year coming back from coyote hunting in S.E. Oregon. Again with guns and ammo.

I NEVER stop at the Ag station. Just roll on through. They are not LEOís and have zero right to stop you.

First few times I didnít stop, I expect to be pulled over by CHP down the road...never has happened yet. KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!

As a side note, on I10 ~15 miles west of the border, there is a big flat spot between the east and west sides of the freeway. CHP is always parked there looking for speeders so stay close to the speed limit through that area.

Arrested!?!? For what? The ammo law is a INFRACTION.

And I would like to hear WHO did the search of the vehicle. WHY they wanted to search it. And why did the drive give consent to let his vehicle to be searched in the first place.

Again....the Ag stations are manned by sate workers who are NOT LEO and have no power of arrest, or power to detain you.

Know the laws.

I drove around the loophole at the South Lake tahoe AG point (same tactic people use to smuggle ferrets in, google it )and got through fine. Its basically driving down Lake tahoe blvd - North upper trukee rd.

Or just go through the South lake tahoe AG point during morning commute, they wont check at all, just wave you through.

I would say you are at risk of being searched if it's a low amount of cars going through, that gives the agents time and a reason to harrass you.

1) I thought my dogs looking suspicious was a hint
2) I didn't use a just kidding smily or maybe this one or this one

Not sure which would have been more appropriate.

Although it's good to know that they can't search without consent.

If you are pulling an enclosed trailer you will likely be stopped on the I-5 from Oregon. I’ve been stopped and checked twice, both times with an enclosed car trailer

Again....I ask WHO is “busting people”?

The AG folks certainly are not....maybe they asking for folks to hand them over. And if people voluntarily admit to having items and then voluntarily give them up...that’s on them and that is not a “bust”.

There are less crowded highways into California with no AG check points, and you really don’t lose but a minute or two longer, Google maps is your friend.
