SAN CLEMENTE – A man suspected of smuggling $1.8 million worth of crystal meth was arrested Tuesday at the northbound I-5 checkpoint near San Clemente, authorities said.
 
U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered the drugs during a search of a 2002 Mazda Tribute about 1:30 p.m., according to a law enforcement statement.
 
An initial search turned up methamphetamine hidden in foil-wrapped packages in a door panel, authorities said. A more in-depth search turned up additional packages underneath the center console and the floor of the SUV.
 
Agents found 183 pounds of methamphetamine in 136 packages, which they estimate has a street value of more than $1.8 million.
 
The driver, a 52-year-old Mexican national, was taken into custody. He and the SUV were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

he messed up, I guess.  don't they usually run with halcones to make the pass when the freeway is open?  they should hire white college students to drive through there with surfboards... better camouflage, and do it  during morning rush hour.

Hmm. Should have taken I-15.

Ha. 1.8m... right if your selling in g. More like 700k-800k, depending who you know and if it remains in CA. DEA always attempts to astonish the public, they could have easily said 4-5m in europe. Ha.
