TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of San Luis arrested a 22-year-old man May 9 for attempting to smuggle almost 42 pounds of methamphetamine with an estimated value exceeding $125,000.

Officers referred the man, a SENTRI cardholder, for a secondary inspection of his Dodge SUV. During the inspection, a CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the rear quarter panels where officers found the drugs.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicle, revoked the man’s SENTRI privileges, turned him over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
