Drugs found taped to man's leg at a pedestrian crossing.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers foiled two smuggling attempts involving methamphetamine at the Port of San Luis this week, officials say.

On Friday morning, a 30-year-old Arizona man was referred for additional screening at a pedestrian crossing. A records check led to an outstanding arrest warrant for the man for possession of marijuana

When officers searched him, a package of meth was found taped to his left leg. The package is worth nearly $600, a Customs and Border Protection news release says.

The man was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations

In a separate incident, officers in San Luis referred the driver of a Toyota sedan for additional inspection after an agency canine alerted to an odor.

Packages of meth weighing more than 10 pounds were found inside the vehicle's spare tire. The drugs are valued in excess of $31,000, the news release said.

The 46-year-old Mexican man was arrested and turned over to Homeland Security Investigations.
