CBP Officer discover 13 lbs of meth in liquid form in vehicle

On May 20, 2009 U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the Naco port of entry stopped a unique attempt at smuggling narcotics into the country when they found "liquid" methamphetamines in the washer fluid reservoir of a 2000 GMC pickup.

CBP officers were performing anti-terrorism and anti-smuggling operations at the Naco port of entry when they encountered a 55-year-old man from California, entering from Mexico. During routine questioning, the officer asking questions became suspicious of the driver and decided the vehicle needed a more intensive inspection. The vehicle was sent to a secondary inspection area where a CBP narcotics canine alerted to the scent of narcotics coming from the vehicle. CBP officers searching the vehicle discovered that the washer fluid reservoir contained a liquid form of methamphetamines. The narcotics, more than thirteen pounds, were seized along with the vehicle. The driver was arrested and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for further investigation and prosecution.
