An El Centro Sector Border Patrol statement says 39 bundles of methamphetamine totaling 42.9 pounds were found Saturday hidden in a Ford Fusion stopped at a State Route 86 checkpoint. The car was driven by a 22-year-old woman accompanied by a 25-year-old man.
The second seizure occurred Sunday afternoon when Border Patrol agents pulled over a Honda Odyssey on Interstate 10. That vehicle was driven by a 31-year-old woman with 25-year-old male passenger.
Agents found 35 bundles of methamphetamine weighing 55.6 pounds.
The Border Patrol estimated the combined street value of both meth seizures at more than $394,000.
