SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man is in custody Wednesday after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found liquid methamphetamine hidden in his car's gas tank.
The 38-year-old unidentified man was stopped at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry Tuesday afternoon and his BMW was inspected by an officer and a narcotic detector dog.
Officers noticed a liquid leaking from a seam to the left of the gas tank, and that the liquid was crystallizing. It was tested and determined to be liquid meth.
Officials found a total of 46 pounds of the drug.
