Agents Seize Methamphetamine Worth More Than $1 Million

Release Date

Calexico, Calif. - U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Calexico station seized a large quantity of methamphetamine on Thursday with an estimated value of $1.25 million.

At approximately 8 a.m., a silver truck driven by a 33 year-old male approached the primary inspection area of the Interstate 8 checkpoint. A Border Patrol canine team alerted to the vehicle and agents referred the driver to the secondary inspection area. The driver, a Legal Permanent Resident, consented to a search of the vehicle. During the search, agents discovered several packages concealed in the dashboard area of the vehicle containing the methamphetamine.

The driver, narcotics and vehicle were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
