Border Patrol has made an alarming discovery – candy laced with methamphetamine.
The Desert Sun reports that agents discovered several boxes of the candy at a checkpoint on Highway 86 near the Salton Sea.
Drug-sniffing dogs led agents to candy, which was inside a 2012 Nissan Frontier being driven by a 48-year-old man.
The tamarind candy, which was labeled in Spanish, tested positive for methamphetamine.
The DEA is now investigating.
