Officials just made the largest meth seizure in Arizona’s port history

Officials discovered a record-breaking amount of meth hidden inside a semi truck hauling produce late last week.

The incident occurred on Friday, October 2nd at the Port of Nogales’ commercial facility near Tucson, Arizona, where the truck was attempting to enter the US from Mexico.

According to officers with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, officials were inspecting the back of the trailer and noticed ‘anomalies’ on the floor amongst the load of bell peppers, cucumbers, and pickles. Upon further investigation, the officers discovered a custom compartment in the floor hiding nearly 650 packages of illegal drugs, including 800 pounds of methamphetamine and 9 pounds of fentanyl.

Officials say that the approximate value of the drugs is nearly $2 million, reported

“This is an enormous amount of very dangerous hard narcotics that Nogales Cargo Officers prevented from reaching communities throughout the United States,” said Area Port Director Michael Humphries.
