SANTA TERESA, N.M. (AP) — U.S. Border Patrol agents have seized a number of bottles filled with liquid methamphetamine at a checkpoint in southern New Mexico.

Officials say the bust happened Tuesday morning in Santa Teresa. The bottles were found in boxes in the backseat of an SUV that was crossing into the U.S. from Mexico.

The drugs were concealed as hand lotion, but agents used a drug-sniffing dog to find the contraband.

Authorities say the bottles weighed about 14 pounds.

The driver, 51-year-old Diega Holguin of Strasburg, Colo., was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations special agents and taken to the Dona Ana County Detention Facility.
