Mexican officials recently discovered nearly 10 tons of liquid meth hidden inside tequila bottles set for export, according to the Associated Press. The shipment, uncovered by members of the Mexican Navy, contained 11,520 bottles of the drug.
On Sunday, officials at the Manzanillo port encountered nearly 1,000 cardboard boxes filled with a brown liquid, assumed to be aged añejo tequila. A drug-detecting dog flagged the shipment, and samples of the liquid were tested at a Navy facility. Officials later confirmed the bottles’ contents were actually meth, according to CNN.
