SAN DIEGO - Nearly 2,500 pounds of methamphetamine hidden in a shipment of medical supplies was seized in Otay Mesa this weekend, border
officials said today.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the drugs, contained in 120 packages concealed amid medical supplies, were onboard a tractor trailer
that entered the Otay Mesa Commercial Facility at around 9:45 a.m. Saturday.
After ``anomalies'' were discovered during an X-ray screening of the truck, a further inspection revealed the hidden meth when CBP officers used a
canine to inspect the cargo, according to CBP.
