Drugs found in vegetable cans

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A 42-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to smuggle more than 10 lbs of crystal methamphetamine in vegetable cans through a checkpoint in California, local authorities said. Border Patrol agents grew suspicious when he began acting nervously, prompting them to direct his Ford Mustang to a secondary inspection area. They searched the trunk of the Mustang and found grocery bags holding several cans of what appeared to be vegetables. Agents opened five of the cans and discovered sealed bottles of meth with an estimated street value of USD192 060. The foiled attempt came a month after agents thwarted a marijuana smuggling attempt in which sealed vegetable cans were used at the San Clemente checkpoint.
