A Yuma Sector Border Patrol canine uncovered almost $60,000 worth of the drugs in the backpack of a man crossing a checkpoint near Arizona, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a press release Tuesday.

Over five pounds of fentanyl, an estimated street value of nearly $60,000, were stuffed inside breakfast burritos within the suspect’s backpack.

The 37-year-old man, a legal U.S. resident, was arrested and the pills were seized from the back of his Chevy Tahoe.

Fox News identified the man as Adrian Salgado-Corona.

Customs and Border Protection told Fox News that the seizure of fentanyl comes amid an overall “increase in the seizure of drugs in the Yuma Area of Responsibility of late.”

Over 600 ‘gotaway’ illegal immigrants disappeared into the U.S. in just one weekend

A video shows just one group of over 150 migrants crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX. FOX LA’s Bill Melugin reports the group is virtually all adults.

The group of adults crossing was merely one moment in time “as the sun came up” but that scenario occurs non-stop. The Border Patrol in the Del Rio sector explains that an unbelievably high amount of over 600 individuals simply are described as “gotaways.”

That means not only are their whereabouts within the United States completely unknown, but so are their identities. They could be human traffickers, drug smugglers, victims, terrorists, kidnapped children, etc.

Not only did the 600 plus people disappear into the country, but the high number was in just one weekend. News also broke of the arrest of a rapist with a forcible sodomy conviction of a migrant who illegally crossed the border in Virginia.
