Teen in custody, 15 pounds of meth seized after traffic stop

JUAREZ, Mexico (Border Report) – A 19-year-old man is being questioned by police after allegedly being caught transporting 15.4 pounds of crystal meth in a truck Tuesday on the Villa Ahumada-Juarez Highway.

Juarez police said Victor Manuel D. was stopped by a patrol car on the highway for speeding. The teenager appeared nervous so the officer decided to search the car and call for backup. The search revealed 16 plastic-wrapped packs in the truck with a substance later determined to be metanphetamine, police said.

The teen was turned over to federal authorities for questioning; the drugs were transferred to the National Guard.
