Mexico Teen Found With Meth-Filled Tequila Bottles At San Jose Mineta Airport

SAN JOSE (KCBS) — Federal agents at Mineta San Jose International Airport arrested a teenage boy from Mexico after he allegedly brought a half-million dollars’ worth of methamphetamine in his luggage, authorities said Wednesday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said their officers arrested the 17-year old on New Year’s Eve after they learned he was transporting more than a gallon of liquid methamphetamine in his bags.

Officials said they found 5 one-liter tequila bottles containing clear liquid.

According to a statement from the agency, lab tests on the liquid confirmed it was meth with a street value of about $500,000.

The drugs were seized and turned over to San Jose police.
