San Diego, CA An 18-year-old teen was taken into custody Wednesday after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials at the San Ysidro Port of Entry discovered marijuana hidden in the tires of a mountain bicycle. The teen, a male U.S. citizen and Tijuana resident, brought the bicycle to the pedestrian border crossing Wednesday afternoon. A CBP officer inspected the bike and became suspicious of the tires. Officers put the bike through an X-ray and saw abnormalities in the tires. A CBP narcotic detector dog screened the bike and alerted. The tires were subsequently removed and border officers discovered marijuana stuffed in the tire tubes, one package inside each tire. Officers said each package contained more than 2.5 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $1,312. Officers seized the bike and marijuana, and the teen was taken into custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. He is being held at the San Diego County Jail.
