Calexico, Calif. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Calexico downtown port of entry intercepted over 228 pounds of narcotics concealed in three vehicles that entered the United States from Mexico, within a three day period, officials announced today.

The total value of the seized narcotics is close to $2 million.

The most recent interception occurred at about 7 a.m. on Monday, at the Calexico downtown port of entry when a green 2003 Lexus was referred for a secondary examination after a detector dog alerted to the vehicle during a pre-primary enforcement operation.

During the secondary examination, CBP officers x-rayed the vehicle revealing 60 wrapped packages of cocaine concealed within the floor area of the vehicle. Total weight of the narcotics is 170 pounds with a street value of more than $1.3 million.

The driver, a permanent resident alien of La Puente, Calif., was arrested. Both the narcotics and vehicle were seized by CBP.

The second seizure occurred at about 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 6, when a 34-year-old Mexican male,
driving a silver 2001 Honda Passport with Baja California plates was referred to the secondary inspection area after the primary officer noticed some discrepancies to the gas tank area.

I think these people with permanent alien status should have their status revoked after serving some time in jail.

I agree. I also would say the same about those here legally but not citizens. We have enough law-abiding people from around the world that would like to be given a chance to legally come here.

I couldn't agree more. They are using our country as the playground for the miscreants of the world. Deport them all!
