On Saturday, Customs and Border Protection officers at the Calexico east port of entry discovered more than 190 pounds of methamphetamine concealed inside the fuel tank of a charter bus.

Shortly after 4 p.m., a 36-year-old male Mexican citizen driving a 1997 Dina Viaggio bus applied for entry into the United States at the port of entry, a CBP news release on Wednesday stated.
