By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Authorities found over 5,000 pounds of methamphetamine this week after following a truck that had crossed into the U.S. from the Mexico border.
The truck was intercepted in San Diego Country and officials arrested 4 men from Tijuana, Mexico, CNN reports.
The suspects were charged with conspiracy to distribute the highly addictive drug.
“This monumental seizure represents another win against drug cartels that fuel addiction in the United States,” said Shelly S. Howe, a Special Agent in Charge at the US Drug Enforcement Administration.
According to authorities, the truck was transporting 148 meth bundles.
After following the truck, authorities say they saw the men unloading dozens of cardboard boxes from the truck into a Dodge van. Those bundles tested positive for meth.
Statistics show that in 2020 alone, over 23,000 Americans died from meth overdose.
