(Lynwood man in custody)…27 year old Adam Pelayo was attempting to cross the border at the Downtown Calexico Port.
The Chevrolet Malibu he was driving was referred to the secondary inspection area. Customs and Border Protection officers noticed anomalies in the vehicle’s gas tank. They say a detector dog alerted to the vehicles rear side quarter panel. A search of the gas tank resulted in the discovery of 35 pounds of methamphetamine wrapped in 34 separate packages. Pelayo was arrested and booked into County Jail.
