NILAND– Two suspected narcotics smugglers were arrested Tuesday morning after more than 13 pounds of methamphetamines were discovered in a vehicle at the Highway 111 checkpoint. The arrests occurred at 6 a.m. after U.S. Border Patrol agents referred a green 1995 Honda Accord driven by a 27-year-old U.S. citizen to secondary inspection.

The inspection revealed multiple individually wrapped packages of methamphetamine hidden underneath the dashboard of the vehicle, according to a Border Patrol press release. The narcotics had a combined weight of 13.99 pounds with an estimated street value of more than $167,000.

Both the driver and passenger, a 47-year-old lawful permanent resident from Mexico, were taken into custody. The vehicle and methamphetamine were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration for further investigation.
