U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found more than 51 pounds of meth hidden inside a 24-year-old Tucson man's car at the Port of Nogales Wednesday.

The meth was stored in 48 packages stashed inside the Chevrolet Impala's rear bumper, quarter panels, firewall and roof.

Officers seized the drugs and turned the man over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
