During the initial inspection, the CBP officer discovered packages in black plastic bags in the spare tire wheel well and radioed for assistance. A K-9 enforcement officer responded to the scene with a CBP human and narcotics detector dog and alerted officers about the presence of narcotics. CBP officers extracted a total of 36 packages with an aggregated weight of 120 pounds. The packages were tested and identified as fentanyl powder, fentanyl pink and blue pills, methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin.

After seizing the car, Homeland Security Investigators took custody of the driver for further questioning. According to CBP, the driver was a trusted traveler enrolled in the SENTRI program, which provides expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the U.S.
