Those pesky border patrolmen are getting wiser by the day, so drug runners seem to be getting more and more creative with their smuggling.
In this case, US Customs and Border Patrol Officers found a 62-year-old man trying to smuggle three pounds of meth hidden within packages of tortillas, Friday, Oct. 28.
They stopped the man at the border in Nogales, Arizona, and turned him in to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
More disappointing than anything, is the waste of all those tortillas. That’s at least 90 tacos that will never come to fruition, all because this dude tried being the Heisenberg of Mexico.
Border patrol also reported an additional meth seizure of 26 pounds that day, worth $78,000. They’re not yet sure if the two seizures were related, but that’s a lot of blow going down the drain in one weekend.
