Teen Spring Valley girl caught with heroin at border

Over two pounds, concealed in trunk

An 18-year-old Spring Valley resident was arrested on Monday, September 23, after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers discovered what they suspected was heroin in the trunk of her car as she entered the United States.

The U.S. resident and her two passengers entered the Otay border crossing in a 1998 Toyota Camry. According to border protection officer John Campos, a CBP officer discovered a vacuum-sealed package concealed inside a lunch bag that was stowed in the car’s trunk.

In an email, Campos said, “CPB officers inspected the substance, which field tested positive for heroin, and seized a total of 2.3 pounds.” The agency says the heroin has an estimated street value of a little over $32,000.

The driver was turned over to Homeland Security investigation agents for further investigation and transported to the Federal Metropolitan Correction Center in downtown San Diego, where she is awaiting arraignment.

According to Campos, the CBP seized the vehicle and the two passengers who were traveling with the suspect were released.
