Teens busted with nearly $70K in meth at Border Patrol checkpoint 10/01/2019 1:54 pm PDT Comments KSWB / CBP By Matt Meyer, KSWB SAN DIEGO (KSWB) -- Two young women were busted with nearly $70,000 of meth at an East County checkpoint last week, Border Patrol said. The women were stopped around noon on Sept. 28 at the agency's Interstate 8 checkpoint in Campo. A K-9 alerted agents to one of the car's back tires, Border Patrol said. Authorities placed the car on a hydraulic lift and found 48 plastic-wrapped bundles of crystal meth in a compartment installed above the gas tank. The bundles weighed just under 30 pounds and carried a street value of over $67,000, Border Patrol said. The women, who are both 19-year-old U.S. citizens, were arrested.
