Officers at the pedestrian crossing area referred a 19-year-old male for additional questioning as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico early Thursday morning. A personal search was undertaken, where officers discovered more than 2.5 pounds of cocaine, worth nearly $29,000 stuffed into the front of his pants.

 

CBP officers seized the drugs, while the subject was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
