A 16-year old teen, whose name has not been disclosed has been arrested at he San Diego border on Sunday for attempting to smuggle meth across the US-Mexico border.
The teen happens to be an US citizen, and was found with couple of large duffel bags filled with around $100,000 worth of methamphetamine. He was hiding in nearby bushes until the border police spotted him trying to hide something. And, BAM! 56 lbs of meth!
The teen was also carrying a remote controlled car and was actually carrying out a recon to let his remote controlled car do the dirty work of smuggling drugs for him.
Police officials say that he’s been doing this multiple times loading and unloading on both sides of the border.
The last time someone pulled off something like this in 2017, he was jailed for 12 months. But he was 26 years old and the one in the current day is 16. The boy has been booked on drug smuggling charges.
