Officers at the pedestrian crossing area referred the man for additional questioning as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. A canine alert led officers to conduct a personal search, where they discovered more than 3.5 pounds of meth, worth nearly $11,000 wrapped around his torso.

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