On a few weeks back, $330,000 worth of methamphetamine was just found at the San Clemente border checkpoint. Perhaps it was part of a great big drug convoy because two busts at the same border stop last week uncovered more than a half-million dollars worth of meth, marijuana and cocaine, according to federal authorities.
After the driver of a 2007 Dodge Ram truck was sent to a secondary inspection area around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, a canine alerted agents to the tailgate area, where 16 plastic bundles were seized, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Four bundles weighing nearly six pounds contained methamphetamine, and the 12 others that weighed nearly 30 pounds held cocaine, according to the border officials who estimated the street value or all the drugs at more than $440,000.
