Andrade, Calif. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the Andrade port of entry over the weekend discovered 26 pounds of methamphetamine concealed inside the rear bumper of a vehicle.

On Saturday, August 10, at about 7:05 p.m., a CBP officer encountered a 34-year-old male U.S. citizen driving a blue 1995 Ford Thunderbird. During the inspection, the officer noticed the driver was nervous and referred him and the vehicle for a more in-depth examination.

CBP officers searched the vehicle and discovered 25 wrapped packages of methamphetamine concealed inside the rear bumper. The street value of the narcotic is estimated at approximately $390,000.

The driver, a resident of Yuma, Arizona, was arrested and turned over to the custody of Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) agents for further processing. He was later transported to the Imperial County Jail where he currently awaits arraignment in federal court for the alleged narcotic smuggling attempt.

CBP seized the vehicle and the narcotic.
