    Around 7:30 a.m., a Border Patrol Canine Detection Team alerted to a red 1995 Jeep Wrangler driven by a 25-year-old man at the Highway 86 checkpoint, according to a press release.

    The driver was referred to secondary for further inspection, and agents then found 16 packages of methamphetamine hidden inside a large compartment built into Jeep’s rear bed.

    The methamphetamine had a combined weight of 34.6 pounds with an estimated street value of $1,089,920.

    The suspect is a U.S. lawfully admitted permanent resident card holder and was taken into custody. He was turned over to the Drug Enforcement Agency along with the vehicle and narcotics for further investigation.
