TUCSON, Ariz. – A 33-year-old Yuma, Arizona man, was caught with a combined 30 pounds of cocaine and methamphetamine during an unsuccessful smuggling attempt Friday at the Port of San Luis.

After U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers selected a Ford Mustang for additional inspection, they found nearly 28 pounds of meth, valued at more than $83,000, within the vehicle’s rear quarter panels. They also seized a single package containing more than two pounds of cocaine, worth more than $24,000.

The drugs and vehicle were seized. The subject was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
