PINE VALLEY: Border Patrol makes huge meth bust

(CNS) – U.S. Border Patrol agents staffing an East County
freeway checkpoint over the weekend discovered a 28-pound stash of
methamphetamine inside an SUV, the federal agency reported.

A more intensive search uncovered the narcotic, which was wrapped in 25
bundles and concealed inside a rear seat cushion. The drug haul had an
estimated street value of roughly $565,000.

The driver, a 41-year-old male Mexican national, was arrested and booked
into the Metropolitan Correction Center in downtown San Diego. His name was
not released.

The Border Patrol impounded the Jeep along with the methamphetamine.
