TEMECULA, Calif. (AP) — A U.S. Border Patrol dog sniffed out more than $190,000 worth of methamphetamine concealed in a vehicle in a Southern California. The agency says an agent patrolling Interstate 15 followed a suspicious vehicle Friday as it exited onto U.S. 395 and parked at a gas station in the unincorporated Rainbow area of San Diego County south of Temecula. The Border Patrol says the dog alerted to the vehicle as the agent spoke to the driver and a detailed inspection found more than 100 pounds of meth in 96 packages inside the gas tank, spare tire and quarter panels of the Ford Explorer. The driver was arrested.
