13 pounds of meth seized at San Luis port of entry

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say 13 pounds of methamphetamine were seized from a car driven from Mexico into the port of entry in San Luis, Ariz.

Ricardo A. Martinez is charged in federal court with importation of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.

The 34-year-old told authorities that he was surprised that drugs had been discovered in his sedan.

He was arrested over the weekend.

There was no Phoenix phone listing for Martinez.

It's unclear whether Martinez has an attorney yet.
