Officers working the pedestrian lanes referred a 50-year-old Mexican male bicyclist for an additional search as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico on Friday evening. A CBP canine alert to the bicycle frame, led officers to discover just more than 1 pound of methamphetamine, worth $3,200.

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