Border Patrol agents seized 56 pounds of cocaine during a routine vehicle inspection on Thursday, with an estimated street value of more than 1.5 million dollars.
A border patrol drug-detecting dog alerted its handler to the presence of drugs in the vehicle, a 2001 Dodge Neon, and the owner consented to having his vehicle searched.
The search yeilded a small amount of marijuane, several small bags of meth, and a false compartment that held 22 bricks of cocaine.
The two men in the car, both mexican nationals, were arrested and are now in the custody of the DEA
