Crystal Meth Bust Near San Clemente
For the second time this week, U.S. Border Patrol agents seized a significant amount of drugs traveling northbound on Interstate 5. On Friday, Oct. 16, U.S. Border Patrol Agents seized crystal methamphetamine and apprehended two drug smugglers along a rest area on Interstate 5 near San Clemente.
At approximately 4:45 p.m., agents on patrol noticed a blue 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 bearing California plates enter a rest area. The agents interviewed the driver, a 25-year-old male United States citizen and the passenger, a 28-year-old Permanent Resident. After further questioning, agents asked to search the vehicle and were granted consent.
During the search, a total to 11 bundles of crystal methamphetamine were found hidden behind the rear seats and in a near storage compartment. The crystal methamphetamine had a total weight of 10.6 pounds and an estimated street value of $243,800. The smugglers and narcotics were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration; the vehicle was seized.
