Border Patrol Seizes More Than $1M In Cocaine

TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) - Border Patrol agents have found cocaine with a street value of more than $1 million concealed in a gas tank compartment of a Mercedes-Benz stopped at a Temecula immigration
checkpoint.

San Diego border patrol officials say in a news release an agent
stopped the car driven by a Mexican citizen, who was legally
traveling in the country.

Officials say after they questioned the driver Tuesday, a Border
Patrol K-9 unit conducted an inspection and found 11 plastic, vacuum sealed bundles of cocaine in the compartment.
