(Over $100,000 of Meth seized)…. Customs and Border Patrol Officers made the seizure.
They were working the Calexico Downtown Port this week. Officers conducting inspections of vehicles encountered a 2000 white Ford F-350 pick-up, driven by a 35-year-old male US citizen. A canine team screened the vehicle and the detector dog alerted to the engine area. The vehicle and the driver were escorted to the secondary inspection area. The CBP officers searched the engine area and found one wrapped package in the intake manifold. The methamphetamine weighed almost five pounds and was valued at $110,000. The driver, a Brawley resident, was arrested and turned over to the custody of Homeland Security Investigations agents for further processing.
