Border officers found $378,000 of methamphetamine hidden in the doors of an SUV being driven into Arizona on Monday, officials say.
A drug dog alerted to the Ford at the Nogales border crossing, and officers found 16 packages – about 24 pounds in total – of methamphetamine hidden in each of the vehicle’s four doors, a news release from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says.
The unidentified men – 26 and 29 years old – are U.S. citizens. They were referred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, the release said.
The drugs and vehicle were seized.
