Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) seized 11.24 pounds of crystal methamphetamineLOS ANGELES – Last week U.S. Customs Border Protection (CBP) officers at LAX Los Angeles International Airport seized around $160,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine, the officials said. Over 11 pounds of methamphetamine was found in the lining of a suitcase belonging to a 27-year-old female passenger on Monday, July 18, 2016.

The suitcase to the woman who resided in San Ysidro California who was arriving home from a trip from Guadalajara, Mexico. CBP officers requested a second inspection due to her nervous behavior during which time they uncovered a false compartment containing the tape-wrapped packages of methamphetamine.

“Once again, the training, expertise, and commitment of our LAX CBP Officers prevented dangerous narcotics from entering and harming our community,” said Mitchell Merriam, CBP Los Angeles International Airport Port Director.

The woman was arrested by CBP officers and was turned over, along with the methamphetamine to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) for further investigation.
