SAN DIEGO (CNS) – About $4.2 million worth of methamphetamine, $1.2  million in cocaine and two guns were seized at border checkpoints this week,  federal agents said Friday.

At San Ysidro on Tuesday, agents stopped a commercial minivan that was  in a bus lane at the border crossing, and a drug-sniffing dog alerted on 23  packages of cocaine hidden inside the fuel tank, according to CBP, who arrested  the 25-year-old driver, a U.S. citizen, and seized a loaded .22-caliber pistol.  His name was not made public.

At Otay Mesa on Monday, Customs and Border Protection agents searched a  Mazda Tribute and 161 packages of methamphetamine and two bundles of cocaine  secreted in door panels, ducting and inside a quarter panel, according to CBP.

The name of the 45-year-old Mexican citizen driving the vehicle was  withheld.

The value of the drugs was based on individual sale prices paid on the  streets in the United States.
