Two people were arrested at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint on suspicion of drug smuggling after the narcotics were found taped to their bodies.
The man and woman were arrested on July 7, at around 6 p.m., at the Highway 86 checkpoint in Southern California, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Agents were alerted to the suspects' vehicle by a K-9.
During a secondary search, agents discovered packages of methamphetamine and fentanyl taped to both the man's and woman's torsos. The drugs had an estimated street value of more than $45,000, the CBP said.
Both suspects were turned over the Drug Enforcement Administration.
No further details were released.
