U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers while checking vehicles at the Otay Mesa port of entry seized 132 pounds of liquid methamphetamine.
Saturday February 8, a 34-year old citizen of Mexico and resident of Tijuana, Baja California, was stopped driving a 1986 Ford F-250 pickup. During the initial inspection, the officer became suspicious of the driver and pulled him aside for a more in-depth investigation.
A CBP canine was utilized to screen the vehicle. The dog alerted to the undercarriage of the vehicle. After an intensive search, 132 pounds of liquid methamphetamine was found hidden in the gas tank.
The subject was taken into custody by Homeland Security Investigations agents and taken to the Metropolitan Correctional Center to await trial.
