LAREDO, Texas (AP) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection says agents have seized 114 pounds of crystal methamphetamine worth more than $3.6 million at a South Texas port of entry.

The agency says the seizure occurred Sunday when a 33-year-old Mexican national living in Duluth, Ga., approached the Lincoln-Juarez Bridge in Laredo.

Agents found two containers of crystal meth hidden in the driver’s Dodge Avenger.

The driver was arrested and the car confiscated along with the drugs. The man was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations, an arm of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

CBP agents in Laredo say Sunday’s confiscation of crystal meth was the month’s largest. More than 300 pounds has been seized in October.
