21 year old busted

(Man found with meth on his body)….Literally.

Saturday a 21 year old Mexican citizen attempted to walk across the border through the Downtown Calexico Port. Customs and Border Protection officers say the man appeared nervous. He was referred to a more detailed examination. During the inspection, officers found two vacuum-sealed packages of methamphetamine strapped to the man’s abdomen. It was concealed under layers of clothing. The drugs weighed almost 3 pounds, with a street value of $51,600. The Mexicali resident was turned over to Homeland Security Investigating agents for further processing. He was later booked into the County Jail to await arraignment.
