U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers referred the 57-year-old man for an additional inspection of his Chevrolet truck at the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry. After a CBP narcotic detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs within the rear and spare tires, officers removed 22 packages of meth worth more than $536,000.

The drugs and vehicle were processed for seizure. The subject was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
