TRUCKER ARRESTED AT BORDER WITH OVER 17,000 POUNDS OF METH

NAYZE MEDIA

Carlos Martin Quintana-Arias, a truck driver from Mexico, was arrested at the U.S/Mexico border and accused of attempting to smuggle “record breaking” amounts of Methamphetamine and Fentanyl into the U.S.

The SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE reported that 17,500 pounds of Meth and 389 pounds of Fentanyl were discovered inside of a tractor trailer. The discovery came as Quintas-Arias was attempting to cross into the U.S at the Otay Mesa Port Of Entry in San Diego.

Quintas-Arias’ driver’s manifest indicated his truck contained auto body parts. Authorities said that “anomalies” were detected by an X-ray machine and a drug sniffing dog. That led to the search, and eventual seizure of the drugs.
