U.S. Border Patrol agents prevented two drug smuggling attempts Thursday, nabbing bundles of methamphetamine and cocaine worth about $1.1 million.

The driver was a 26-year-old male U.S. citizen who consented to a Border Patrol K-9 team inspection of the vehicle.The dog pointed to the rear area of the car, where agents discovered a compartment containing 18.2 pounds of meth in 15 bundles worth $364,000, according to the release.

At 9 a.m. Thursday, the border patrol stopped a woman on I-8 in San Diego County. Her SUV, which agents stopped after she exited the Kitchen Creek Road offramp, had 23 bundles of cocaine and meth stuffed in the bumpers--30.8 pounds of met worth $617,000 and 11.2 pounds of cocaine worth $112,000, according to the border patrol release.
