Remote-controlled car stopped smuggling drugs
SAN DIEGO – (INT) – An unusual attempt at smuggling illegal drugs across the Mexican border has been foiled.
Border Patrol agents say a 16-year-old boy was hiding a thick brush along the secondary border wall at San Ysidro operating a remote-controlled miniature car.
Agents searched two large duffel bags with 50 packages of methamphetamine. The bundles weighed in at 56 pounds with an estimated street value of $106,096.
The youth was arrested and is facing drug smuggling charges.
Two years ago in the same area a remote-controlled drone smuggling narcotics across the border was seized.
