U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Indio Immigration and Customs station confiscated a quarter of a million dollars worth of methamphetamine on Monday.
According to the agents, a white Chevrolet pick-up truck approached the first inspection station at 12:30 p.m. where the driver was referred to the second inspection.
During that round of searches, a canine team alerted agents to the front end of the vehicle.
They transported the vehicle to another facility to conduct a more extensive search, and found something inside the radiator.
Once agents drained and removed it from the truck, they said they found several packages containing methamphetamine.
The driver and the drugs were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
