Calexico, California – Customs and Border Protection officers working at the Calexico downtown port of entry on Sunday discovered approximately $76,800 worth of methamphetamine concealed inside a vehicle battery.

Shortly after 6:00 a.m. Tuesday, a narcotic detector dog alerted to the engine compartment of a 2001 Volkswagen as it waited in line for inspection. Officers referred the 26-year-old female driver and her 42-year-old female passenger to a secure area for an in-depth examination.

CBP officers conducted an intensive inspection and discovered a specially-built compartment in the vehicle’s battery that concealed a single wrapped package of methamphetamine.

The narcotics weighed approximately four pounds.

The women, both U.S. citizens and residents of Arizona, were arrested and turned over to the custody of Homeland Security Investigations agents for further processing. They were both later transported to the Imperial County Jail to await their arraignment.

CBP seized the vehicle and narcotics.
