JAMUL, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say they seized nearly 26 pounds of methamphetamine that was being smuggled through a rural area of San Diego County.

The U.S. Border Patrol says the meth, worth more than a half million dollars on the street, was hidden in a BMW that was stopped Monday at a checkpoint on State Route 94 near Jamul.

Authorities say the driver seemed nervous and a drug dog alerted. A search of the car turned up 16 parcels of meth hidden behind the car's body panels.

The driver, identified as a 49-year-old U.S. citizen, and the car were turned over to the DEA for further investigation.
