560 Pounds of Meth, Cocaine Found in Quartz Boulders at California Border


U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers disrupted a unique drug smuggling operation by finding cocaine and methamphetamine hidden in large boulders of quartz. Smugglers hid 229 packages of drugs inside the boulders and cemented them back together.

CBP officers assigned to the Tecate cargo crossing on September 14 observed a tractor-trailer approaching for entry into the United States. The driver presented a manifest indicating a load of beach pebbles and stones, according to information obtained from CBP officials.

During the initial inspection, officers noted discrepancies and referred the driver to a secondary inspection area. A CBP K-9 alerted to the possible presence of drugs in multiple large quartz boulders. The officers searched through the shipment of rocks and eventually had to break open the boulders.

Inside, the officers found 229 packages of drugs. Officers tested the drugs and determined the packages contained methamphetamine and cocaine.
