Border Patrol Agents Find 12 Pounds of Meth

U.S. Border Patrol agents took more methamphetamine off the streets Tuesday by foiling an attempted smuggling at the San Clemente checkpoint.

Last week, agents found $7 million in meth stashed in the hull of a boat in Oceanside Harbor.

In the most recent discovery, agents searched a pickup driven by a U.S. citizen who had an undocumented Mexican national as a passenger.

A K-9 gave a positive alert for narcotics, and a non-intrusive X-ray detection system discovered anomalies within the truck, according to a Border Patrol press release.

Agents searched the Ford F-150 and found bundles of meth underneath the truck bed and even more hidden with “natural voids of the vehicle,” the release states.

The bundles weighed 12.24 pounds and had an estimated street value of $122,400.

Both the 32-year-old U.S. citizen and the 32-year-old Mexican national were arrested and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration for further investigation. Their names were withheld.
