Calexico, California – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working Monday discovered $217,536 worth of methamphetamine, concealed inside the undercarriage of a vehicle.

The incident occurred on Nov. 18, shortly before 1:00 p.m. when a canine team screening vehicles at the downtown port alerted to a 2007 Buick La Crosse as the driver waited in line for inspection. Both the vehicle and driver were escorted to a secure area for a more in-depth examination.

While conducting an intensive inspection, officers discovered 10 wrapped packages of methamphetamine concealed inside the undercarriage of the vehicle. The total weight of the narcotics was about 11 pounds.

The driver, a 43-year-old female Mexican citizen and resident of Mexicali, Baja California, was arrested and turned over to the custody of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents for further processing.

CBP placed an immigration hold on the subject to initiate removal from the United States at the conclusion of her criminal proceedings.

The subject was later transported to the Imperial County Jail to await arraignment.

CBP seized the vehicle and narcotics.
