(91 pounds of meth seized)…It happened Friday morning.

El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents were working the Highway 86 Immigration Checkpoint. At just after 9:00 am a 47 year old woman driving a Honda Pilot entered the checkpoint. A Border Patrol canine detection team alerted to the vehicle, and it was sent to the secondary inspection area. During the search of the vehicle, agents discovered several packages hidden inside the ceiling of the vehicle, in a false compartment. The packages contained 91.4 pounds of methamphetamine, with an estimated value of over $210, 000. The woman, a citizen of Mexico, the narcotics and the vehicle were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration for further investigation.
