Custom and Border Protection officers at the Port of Nogales found methamphetamine stuffed inside of tortillas on Friday.

Authorities say a 62-year-old Nogales, Arizona man attempted to carry nearly 3 pounds of meth in the tortilla packages across the border.

Officers were able to detect the narcotic with the help of a drug-sniffing dog. 

The drugs were seized and the man was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
