According to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Office of Field Operations at the Eagle Pass Port of Entry recently found pumpkins filled with $402,196 in liquid meth.

“Our frontline CBP officers have seen just about everything and this Tuesday was no exception as they encountered liquid methamphetamine hidden within pumpkins,” said (Acting) Port Director Elizabeth Garduno, Eagle Pass Port of Entry, in the news release. “They utilized their training, experience, interviewing skills and uncovered a rather novel narcotics smuggling method in the process.”

CBP said that the liquid meth weighed about 44 pounds and was concealed within 136 condoms inside four pumpkins within the car.

According to KSAT, the discovery of the liquid meth inside of the pumpkins was made after two men in a 2012 Ford Escape arrived at the port coming into the United States from Mexico.

The men were taken into custody by the Maverick County Sheriff’s Office, according to KSAT. CBP seized the drugs and the car.
