A border patrol agent has been a real good boy lately. This K9 agent found approximately 30 pounds of methamphetamine.
This discovery was made near Yuma, Arizona, an area known for drug smuggling and human trafficking. The presence of drugs was detected by the K9 agent while doing a routine check of a truck.
This lead to the rest of the agents to do a second, more thorough, inspection of the truck.
There was a hidden stash in a spare tire as well as under the truck’s seat.
The total findings are 3 pounds of heroin, 2 pounds of THC and 30 pounds of meth. The total street value of the drugs was $327,000.
Not too long ago, there was another major bust in the area, but this one was related to human trafficking. The driver refused to yield, and there was a high-speed chase involved.
The truck rolled over on Highway 78 because the driver lost control of the vehicle as he was trying to avoid getting arrested. He has serious head trauma as well as torso injuries.
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.
