SAN DIEGO (KTLA) -- A man was stopped at the Mexican border wearing a girdle stuffed with heroin, according to customs officials.
The suspect was stopped while trying to walk into the U.S. at the San Ysidro Port of Entry on Wednesday.
A drug-sniffing dog alerted on the man, identified only as a 69-year-old Bell Gardens resident.
Two pounds of heroin were found stuffed in the waistband of a girdle the man was wearing.
