Grandmother Nabbed Trying to Smuggle 200 Lbs of Meth Over Mexican Border

A 65-year-old grandmother was arrested at the San Diego border crossing trying to smuggle 200 pounds of meth across the border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported the January 19 arrest of the woman and her 19-year-old granddaughter this week, according to a CBP statement.

CBP officers detained the woman’s 2006 Dodge Durango after drug-sniffing dogs alerted officers to the smell of illegal substances.

When CBP officers searched the vehicle, they discovered 299 packages of methamphetamine, weighing 219 pounds from the vehicle’s roof, doors, and quarter panels.

The CBP said that the drugs had a street value of more than $416,000.

Naturally, both women, the car, and the drugs were seized by agents.

It was unclear if the women had any legal representation.

Later that day, a 44-year-old man entered on foot through Otay Mesa port of entry.

However, CBP officers confirmed that Eduardo Aguilar had an active warrant for homicide from the Denver Colorado Sheriff’s Department with no bail set. Aguilar was transported to San Diego County Jail pending extradition.

“These cases are just examples of the apprehensions CBP officers catch on a daily basis,” said Pete Flores, Director of Field Operations for CBP in San Diego. “CBP officers are vigilant to stop those who would do harm in our communities at the border, as they attempt to enter the U.S.”
