US Customs and Border Protection officers have seized $60,000 worth of methamphetamine hidden in child booster seats at a checkpoint in California, the agency said.

Agents assigned to the Newton Azrak Border Patrol Station in Murrieta stopped a driver on an interstate north of the checkpoint on Wednesday. There were two adults and four children inside the vehicle, authorities said in a news release on Friday.

The agency dispatched a K-9 team, which detected the presence of narcotics inside the children’s three booster seats, the agency said.

“In those booster seats, several packages were found containing a white crystal substance that tested positive for methamphetamine,” according to the release.

The inspection revealed that the driver — a United States citizen — was in possession of 26.9 pounds of methamphetamine with an estimated street value of $60,000, authorities said.
