Border Patrol K9 Locates 30 Pounds of Meth At Checkpoint

A Border Patrol K9 agent in southwestern Arizona discovered 30 pounds of methamphetamine and other drugs at an inland border checkpoint.

The agents assigned to the Yuma Sector observed a Dodge pickup truck approach the Interstate 8 inland border checkpoint located east of Yuma, Arizona. During a cursory check of the truck, a K9 agent alerted to the possible presence of drugs, according to information provided to Breitbart Texas by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokesman Justin Kallinger.

The agents conducted a secondary inspection on the truck. The inspection led to the discovery of drugs hidden inside a spare tire, officials stated. Agents also found drugs hidden under the truck’s seats.

The agents found 3 pounds of heroin, 2 pounds of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and 30 pounds of methamphetamine.

The agents arrested the driver of the Dodge pickup truck and identified him as a U.S. citizen. They did not disclose the driver’s identity in the official statement. Officials seized the truck and the drugs, estimated to be worth $327,000 in street value.

The suspect will be turned over to another federal law enforcement agency for possible prosecution under drug trafficking laws.
