Border agents seize millions in narcotics at San Ysidro and Otay Mesa port of entries

Large cocaine and methamphetamine seizures along border near San Diego

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials announced two large narcotic busts, during the days of July 1 and July 2, at the San Diego area port of entries. During the seizures, an estimated $5.4 million in narcotics were seized.

The first seizure, on July 1 at the Otay Mesa port of entry, occurred when a female Mexican citizen was arrested with 209 pounds of methamphetamine. According to authorities, the port’s imaging system detected anomalies in the vehicles doors, which led to the seizure and arrest.

The second seizure, which took place on July 2 at the San Ysidro port of entry, revealed a male U.S. citizen carrying 102 pounds of cocaine. The man, who was arrested with a handgun in his possession, was driving a commercial van that held the narcotics in the gas tank.
