More than $116,000 worth of methamphetamine was seized at the border crossing in Lukeville last weekend, officials say.
A 22-year-old man was referred for further inspection after a drug dog alerted to the scent of drugs near the man's car. A 16-year-old girl was a passenger in the vehicle, a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.
After searching the car, officers found 39 pounds of meth, estimated at more than $116,000, the release shows.
Both the man and the girl were arrested, according to the release. The drugs and the car were seized.
No further information has been released.
