Comments Off on CBP seized methamphetamine valued at nearly $42k

Two pedestrians allegedly attempting to smuggle methamphetamine taped to their legs were arrested at the San Luis Port of Entry over the Labor Day weekend.

The arrests were made following two separate incidents. Mario Alberto Salgado Trejo, 25, was arrested on Aug. 31 after officers found 1.2 pounds of methamphetamine taped to his thighs, according to U.S. Custom and Border Protection. The drugs had an estimated street value of $18,600.

The second incident occurred on Sept. 1, when a 17-year-old male was apprehended after officers found close to two pounds of meth taped to his thighs. Those drugs were worth an estimated $23,870.

In each incident, the drugs were processed for seizure and the two suspects were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcements’ Homeland Security Investigations.
