26 kilograms of cocaine found in hidden compartment

A Border Patrol agent working at the traffic checkpoint on Interstate
19 in Amado, Ariz. referred a vehicle to a secondary check due to
inconsistencies with the driver’s immigration documents. At this time
a Border Patrol K9 alerted to the possible presence of narcotics
inside the vehicle. A CBP officer working along side the agents was
given consent to search the vehicle and discovered a hidden
compartment in the floor boards of the vehicle. A total of 26
kilograms (59 pounds) of cocaine was found inside a hidden
compartment. The cocaine, with an estimated street value of over
$400,000 dollars, driver and vehicle were turned over to the Drug
Enforcement Administration.
