In the war on drugs and combatting human trafficking, the creativity of criminals is becoming increasingly difficult for border patrol agents to navigate. In a recent seizure, K9 units at the Otay Mesa border crossing between Tijuana and San Diego found a stash of methamphetamines disguised as onions.
“This was not only a clever attempt to try and smuggle in narcotics, one I haven’t seen before, but also time consuming to wrap narcotics into these small packages, designed to look like onions,” said Sidney Aki, the Director of Field Operations in San Diego for US Customs and Border Protection.
“While we have certainly seen narcotics in produce before, it’s unusual for us to see this level of detail in the concealment,” said Aki.
The attempted smuggler was a 46-year-old citizen of Mexico. He was arrested before being handed over to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.
The New York Post reports, “the 1,197 packages of methamphetamines, packed among real onions in the back of a tractor-trailer, were shaped into small globes with a white covering, weighing 1,336 pounds and valued at $2.9 million.”

CARTER: Drug Cartels Funneling Money ‘Through Chinese Banks’
Sara Carter joined Fox News host Steve Hilton to discuss one aspect of the border crisis no one is talking about: what happens to the drug money?
The crisis continues to increase, so we have to ask ourselves, “what happens when the money goes back?” questions Carter of the money cartels make.
“According to the United States government, the U.S. Department of Treasury, the Mexican drug cartels are actually funneling that money back through Chinese banks” explains Carter.
“We are losing our children” says Carter, while “not only are the drug cartels taking advantage of our national security crisis, but the enemies of our country are taking advantage of the national security crisis at our border.”
“We are losing a generation of Americans” from the dangerous drugs crossing the border. “What is the Biden administration going to do about that?” begs Carter. Those questions need to be posed “directly to the administration.”
