About 100 pounds of methamphetamine and $20,000 was found near the Canadian border on Sunday.
Border patrol agents found the drugs and cash in three backpacks and a duffel bag in a field at the border just west of the Danville port of entry.
The seizures “were the result of effective tactical planning and utilization of advanced surveillance technology,” according to a news release.
“This seizure is yet another example of the good work exercised daily by our highly trained Border Patrol Agents,” said Gloria Chavez, chief of the Spokane Border Patrol Sector. “Our surveillance and tactical coordination capabilities played a pivotal role in the discovery and seizure of the cash and illicit contraband.”
No other details were available. The Drug Enforcement Administration is investigating.
The seizure rivals the discovery of 310 pounds of Ecstasy near the border in October 2010.
