When Vasa Major, 41, a resident of Campbell, Calif., applied for entry at the border, he was directed to a secondary inspection area where officers noticed his gas tank appeared to have been modified. A CBP narcotics detection canine was then used to confirm the presence of drugs. After officers removed the fuel tank, they found nine containers of liquid meth valued at $1,027,774.
The drugs and vehicle were seized. Major was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
