U.S.: Meth found hidden in shipment of green onions
Customs officers at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry found US$1.4 million worth of methamphetamine stashed in a shipment of green onions over the weekend, authorities said.
The 614 pounds of meth were found Sunday after the driver of a big rig told Customs and Border Protection officers that the cargo was “mint leaves and other spices,” officials said in a news release.
Officers scanned the truck and trailer using an imaging system, which identified what officials described as anomalies in the cargo. During a second screening, a drug-sniffing dog reacted to the boxes.
