SAN LUIS, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers caught a 31-year-old border resident with six pounds of methamphetamine worth nearly $18,000 during an alleged smuggling attempt Wednesday at the Port of San Luis.

After CBP officers selected a Mercury sedan for additional inspection, a narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs within the engine compartment. Officers searched the area and located a single package of meth within the engine’s intake manifold.

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