Seize 92 Pounds of Heroin from 81 year old Woman at Tecate POE

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat from U.S. Customs and Border Protection 


SAN DIEGO — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Tecate port of entry Wednesday seized 92 pounds of heroin, valued at more than $870,000, from an elderly woman.

81-year-old woman had heroin hidden inside areas of her car.

“The cartels will try and manipulate anyone to smuggle their narcotics through the ports of entry,” said San Diego CBP Director of Field Operations Pete Flores. “CBP officers are aware of the many tactics used by the cartels and remain ever vigilant to stop anyone attempting to smuggle narcotics.”

CBP officers working at the Tecate border crossing encountered a 81-year-old woman, United States citizen,  when she entered the U.S. driving a 2011 Chrysler 200 at about 11:30 a.m. A CBP K-9 team was screening vehicles as they waited in line for inspection when the detector dog alerted to the driver side rocker panel.

CBP officers referred the vehicle for a more in-depth inspection, during which CBP officers discovered and extracted a total of 34 wrapped packages of heroin from the vehicle’s rocker panels. The estimated street value of the heroin is over $870,000.

The woman was arrested and turned over to Homeland Security Investigations agents for further processing and CBP officers seized the vehicle.

CBP officers at the border crossings in Southern California routinely stop illegal activity, while processing millions of legitimate travelers into the United States. Those statistics can be found here: CBP-enforcement-statistics.

  1. Pinche viejita. No más da risa la guey. A der ver pensado: No pos ya voy para afuera. De perdis le atoró para ver si pueda ganar me unos dolaritos. Pos ya que chingados. Preparen me el 200!

    Fucking old lady. It just makes me laugh. She must’ve thought to herself: Well I’m almost on my way out of this life. I can at least give it a try to see if I can make me some dollars. Fuck it. Get that Chrysler 200 ready! - Sol Prendido

    1. That's the 'positive' reading. The negative and sadly more realistic is that she's threatened into doing it because of some leverage they might have over her.

    3. No she has family and most won't do anything to jeopardize losing her family. She needs medical issues or prescriptions she cant afford.

    7. No chrysler 200 is not a mexican version of the american 300 like you say, The 200 is an american car that came before the 300.

    8. 2:08 the chrysler 299 is the one before el de chUy y Mauricio. El 300. Best translation ever , on point.

    9. @2:08, the modern 300 came out before the 200 actually. But either way, who cares. On a side note, I don’t think she was forced nor do I think this was her first trip. This was a tip off.

    10. @9:56 What gets me about this story is where the hell were her kids? Am I supposed to believe those dumb ass adults couldn’t buy her medication. It just goes to show you how fucked up some people can be. Instead of taking caring of their parents everyone is more concerned about their bullshit careers. More than likely she has sorry ass in laws as well. Unless of course she got set up. And this is all a case of someone taking advantage of a senior citizen. - Sol Prendido

  2. Regardless of the harm the old lady was doing, these idiots gotta start doing a better job of concealing and wrapping their dope. They might fool a border agent, but you can't fool a drug sniffing dog...Ni pedo, at least she won't have to worry about health care, rent, taxes and a shortage of social security check.

    1. It doesn’t matter how they wrapped it. They got a tip off on the car. The dog was just to create “probable” cause. I’d ride with a female dog in heat to get rid of a dog. That’s the least of the worries.

  3. Doubt it. They probably hid it in the car without her knowing. That is a big tactic used by the cartels. They will either loan a car to an unsuspecting person or they will break in when you are at the movies or something and quickly stash drugs in your car and follow you across the border while your sleeping in your comfortable bed narcos are removing the dope from your car.

    1. I agree. Or brought it to a shop to get fixed. Loaded it with the dope and followed her into U.S. and steal her car back.

    2. This is an old means of smuggling. I learned of this from a smuggler in the 1960s.
      One version had cars from So Cal towns. Innocent owners who did not know their car was targeted for smuggling would be invited to Mexico for some event like a wedding or whatever. While in Mexico, their cars would be loaded with drugs.
      On returning to their US towns, their vehicles were "stolen" and the drugs recovered. The car owners never had clue as to what happened.

  5. 8:03; Your Spanish is written like you were raised in the hood and did it ever occur to you that the old lady was likely doing it out of duress? I don’t think your life achievement of being able to make the monthly lease on a Chrysler 200 is the same as an old lady - insensitive nit wit!

    1. I can adjust everything accordingly wherever I go. I’ve never had any problems within whatever country I’ve traveled through. My life isn’t about being all nice and proper. I’m not that guy. If I have to hit that switch to be the bad man. Trust me I can do it effortlessly. And afterwards I can just as well go eat a jelly sandwich like nothing ever happened. You’d be surprised how well I blend in wherever I go. - Sol Prendido

    1. From the picture it looks like bricks, so it’s probably not black tar. Usually, black tar is in thin flat sheets.

  11. Where do feds get the value of the drugs?
    60 lbs of coke is worth 2 mill?

    valleycentral.com/news/local/60-pounds-of-cocaine-seized-at-sarita-checkpoint

    Yet 92 lbs heroin is $870k?

    There is always so much discrepancy hard to believe em anymore

    1. I said the same thing- usually they come up with a ridiculous figure like "drug bust- 1 kilo of cocaine seized worth 12 million dollars" etc i figured this was tar, but someone corrected me saying it most likely wasnt- so 92 lbs (apx 45 kilos) @50k (?) Is just over 2 million, yes?? How much are bricks of powder right now?? I figured 50 on the low end- i know where im at they run up to 70 sometimes

  12. Throw her in jail just liek they would anyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeah, the Coke is around 750K and the Ron about 1.5 mil. Strictly whole numbers because obviously the gram to gram guy ain’t buying kilos.

  14. That value estimate seems a little strange . Sometimes they will value it in the bulk wholesale and sometimes they will estimate the street value sold on the "corner" a dose at a time . One thing you can bet is they want it as condensed as possible coming across . I would bet it isn't stepped on yet , unless there fentanyl added .
    Its crazy who they do their estimates . Not far from me they done a marijuana grow bust a couple years back . Went in and pulled up u bunch of immature plants and took pictures. Estimated it as a 4 million $ bust . In reality it would have taken a very talented dealer to have scraped a thousand out of what they confiscated . They obviously estimated the maximum a mature plant could yield and estimated the maximum it could bring for gram . In reality I doubt in my locust infested dry area it would have ever matured .
