Remote controlled drug smuggling car: 16-year-old arrested for using a device to transport drugs across the border



A teenager, a US citizen, was arrested on Sunday after agents noticed him carrying two large travel bags and hiding in the agent's eyes, US customs and border protection said in a statement.

He was found hiding in thick thickets along the border. When they searched him, agents found a remote-controlled car and 50 packs of methamphetamine, CBP said.

The agency claims the confiscated £ 55.84 methamphetamine has an estimated value of USD 106,096.

CBP says the teenager found 55.84 pounds of methamphetamine.

The CBP statement says the teenager faces charges of drug smuggling.

"I am extremely proud of agents' increased vigilance and hard work to stop this amazing smuggling program," said Douglas Harrison, Chief Sector Inspector in San Diego.

A similar event occurred in August 2017, when agents arrested a 25-year-old man for trying to smuggle drugs across the border with a remote-controlled drone.
According to CBP, this drone was used by a man in 2017 to smuggle drugs across the border.

The agency said the man was found with 13.44 pounds of methamphetamine.
