    I have little sympathy for such meth dealers, but this just isn't America.

    KXO: Meth found hidden in a pick-up

    Agents say the 25 year old woman driving a Ford F-250 pick-up appeared nervous when she drove into the check-point near Pine Valley. The agents referred her to the secondary inspection area. A Border Patrol k-9 alerted to the vehicle. A search of the rear tire area resulted in the discovery of a non-factory compartment within the rear brake drums. Inside the compartment was 8 bundles of methamphetamine, weighing 8.71 pounds. An estimated street of $174,200. The driver, a US citizen was arrested. She and the narcotics were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration for further investigation. The truck was seized by the Border Patrol.
