San Luis CBP Officers Seize $130K Worth of Meth
TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at Arizona’s Port of San Luis arrested an adult male Friday night, suspected of smuggling more than 43 pounds of methamphetamine.
Officers referred the 45-year-old man, a resident alien from El Centro, California, for further inspection of his Ford truck. During the search, a CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the truck’s door panels where officers found the drugs, worth almost $130,000.
CBP officers seized the truck and drugs, arrested and turned the suspected violator over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
