CALEXICO — U.S. Customs and Border Protection found about $110,000 worth of methamphetamine concealed in a hidden compartment built into a vehicle’s undercarriage at the Calexico downtown Port of Entry on Monday.

Shortly before 8 a.m., a 27-year-old male U.S. citizen driving a 2001 Volkswagen Passat approached the port, and officers referred the vehicle and him for a more in-depth examination.
