Three U.S. citizens were arrested and about 70 pounds of methamphetamine  worth more than $1.2 million were seized during separate incidents at the Port  of San Luis recently.
The first incident happened when 27-year-old  Carolina Garibay, an American citizen living in San Luis, Rio Colorado, Sonora,  Mexico, attempted to drive a vehicle across the border into the  U.S.
Garibay was directed to a secondary inspection area where a working  dog indicated the possible presence of contraband within her vehicle. Upon  further scrutiny, Customs and Border Protection Officers allegedly found several  packages of methamphetamine hidden in the frame of the vehicle beneath the  doors, and in the rear bumper. The meth, about 35 pounds in total, was worth  about $545,600.
The second incident happened when 20-year-old Jesse James  Lopez of Phoenix attempted to drive a Jeep SUV across the border and was  referred to a secondary inspection area.
After a working dog indicated  the possible presence of contraband in the vehicle, CBP officers allegedly  located 12 pounds of meth separated into 10 packages concealed within the  quarter panels of the jeep. The meth was worth about $179,000.
The third  incident happened when 53-year-old Hector Salcido San Pedro, Calif., attempted  to drive a Ford truck across the border and was referred to the secondary  inspection area.
After a working dog indicated the possible presence of  contraband in the vehicle, CBP officers allegedly located 32 pounds of meth  concealed within the gas tank. The meth was worth more than $497,800.
The  drugs and vehicles were seized. Garibay, Lopez, and Salcido were turned over to  U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security  Investigations.
