San Diego: 25 kilos of cocaine seized at checkpoint

25 kilos of cocaine seized outside San Diego

Less then 2 weeks after nearly 375 kilos were seized in Santa Fe Springs and San Bernardino, another 25 fall in San Clemente, 30 minutes outside San Diego, last Friday, June 19th.  The checkpoint is a frequent interdiction point, though it is open and active, in erratic times and hours.

Last year in two separate incidents nearly 50 kilos were seized, and 1.5 million in cash.  The San Clemente stop is the last, and only checkpoint between San Diego and Los Angeles, a major trafficking and distribution point.  

In this instance a 30 year old U.S citizen was contacted by US Customs and Border Protection, at a rest stop about 6 miles before the checkpoint.  It can be inferred the driver was waiting for communication via phone that the checkpoint was either open or closed.

Drivers that fit a description or spend too much time in the rest stop are likely spotted by ICE officers, and contacted for further review, similar to how the exits around a DUI checkpoint are monitored, for drivers attempting to avoid the stop. 

After a consent search the officers found 25 packages of cocaine, weighing 67 pounds, and turned the driver over to the DEA. The product was estimated at nearly a million dollars, 871,000, which is roughly 29,000 per kilo.

    2. Nonsense. El Tigrillo Arellano got nabbed back in 2006. Almost a decade in the making. While being Uncle Sam's guest he had zero contact to any movements outside. Let alone Baja. Alot of things change in a decade.

    2. Is this a game to you? It is either that or stupidity. You comment doesn't even make sense. Mencho leads an offensive attack to keep for getting captured.

      Someone should tell him to send the offensive in as he slips away. Yeah, someone should tell him. Go ahead Josephine

  8. The individuals I know that have done this in the past, would travel half an hour behind the individual that would give the heads up. They would never sit around and wait for the call. They would get the notification while they were still driving to avoid suspicion. I wonder what happened here.

  10. For 29000/k in So Cal what kind of purity are we talking here?

  11. It's simple, take the 15 north & then jump on the 10 west towards Los Angeles. It'll take longer but you guarantee delivery. Unlike taking the 5 north & risk getting stopped at the last checkpoint which is most of the time under watch but they take it anyway since the drive is an hour & a half depending on traffic.

  14. @5:39pm if you take the 15 north you still go through the checkpoint in temecula before you get to the 10

  15. These criminals keep finding new ways to transport drugs and other things. My brother works with a Los Angeles DUI lawyer and often tells that most of teenagers after getting high on booze or weed drive recklessly without realizing what consequences they have to bear if caught.
