NOGALES, Mexico, April 12 (UPI) -- About $3 million worth of wedding gowns and accessories stolen from Scottsdale, Ariz., have been recovered by federal authorities at the U.S.-Mexican border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the missing items were found in the trailer of a truck attempting to cross over the border from Nogales, Ariz., to Mexico, the Arizona Republic reported Thursday.

The dresses were taken Nov. 5 from the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation. The charity sells the wedding materials for discount prices at bridal shows around the country and uses the profits to help grant the wishes of terminal cancer victims.
