Border Patrol agents from the El Centro Sector observed a car while on patrol. They stopped the vehicle and asked for a check, but the driver refused.
Law enforcement officers smelled drugs and searched the vehicle. Thus, they discovered five bags containing several packages wrapped in cellophane, as narcotics are usually transported, according to the agency.
A sample of the packages was taken and it was confirmed that there were bags of methamphetamine in the car. The 154 kilograms of the substance had an estimated street value of $278,000, according to CBP.
The driver was arrested, and the police are continuing the investigation in this case.
