U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized more than $1 million worth of methamphetamine in Southern California. Officers at the Otay Mesa facility in San Diego arrested a 49-year-old man who was driving a tractor with a trailer full of what he said was spinach, but was really $1.3 million of methamphetamine.

Border officials inspected the shipment and found 127 wrapped packages of meth mixed with boxes of spinach that weighed almost 600 pounds.

The driver was transported to the Metropolitan Correction Center and will face federal charges.
