222 pounds of liquid meth found in gas tank


(CNN) — Customs and Border Protection agents find 222 pounds of liquid meth in California.

That’s worth about $266,000.

A CBP dog alerted the agents to a truck’s gas tank at the Calexico border.

They removed the tank and found an unusual liquid substance that began to crystallize.

It tested positive for meth.

A 36-year-old male US citizen was arrested.

His name has not been released.

CBP agents have seized more than 40,000 pounds of meth since October.
