CBP officers find $3.9 million worth of meth, cocaine cemented inside boulders at Tecate crossing



Customs officers found 560 pounds of methamphetamine and cocaine, worth nearly $4 million, cemented inside several quartz boulders Monday morning at a cargo crossing at the Tecate Port of Entry in East County, authorities said.

Officers broke open the boulders around 10:45 a.m. Monday after becoming suspicious of a big rig hauling what its manifest listed as “multiple tons of beach pebbles and stones,” according to a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

Cemented inside the quartz boulders, officers found 229 packages wrapped in black electrical tape, officials said. That included 104 packages of methamphetamine weighing 337 pounds, and 125 packages of cocaine weighing 223 pounds.

Combined, the drugs had an estimated street value of roughly $3.9 million, officials said.

2. Beach pebbles and stones? Why weren't they listed as landscape rock? That would have made sense.

Idiots.
