Border Patrol Agents at Newton Azrak Border Patrol Station arrest a citizen attempting to smuggle meth in child booster seats.
SAN DIEGO (KYMA, KECY) - US Border Patrol says a United States citizen attempts to smuggle meth in child booster seats.
On June 15, the Border Patrol agents discover a vehicle with two adults and four children at a vehicle stop north of the Newton Azrak Border Patrol station checkpoint.
The vehicle's booster seats contained several packages of white crystal substance that tested positive for meth.
The driver was arrested for being in possession of 26.9 pounds of meth with an estimated street value of $60,000.
Both the driver and narcotics were turned over to the Inland Crackdown Allied Taskforce for prosecution and the vehicle was seized by Border Patrol.
The mother and her four children were released.
“Our agents continue to work around the clock to protect our communities,” says Aaron M. Heitke, Chief Patrol Agent at the San Diego Sector. “Drug smugglers will use any means necessary to get their poison onto our streets. Nothing is sacred to them, not even family.”
