17.4 pounds of the deadly drug fentanyl has been seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers after a vehicle inspection earlier this week in California.

The bust resulted in the arrests of two American citizens for drug smuggling charges.

Agents from Yuma Sector assigned to the Blythe Station stopped a male driver of a 2013 Dodge Journey at a designated immigration checkpoint on highway 78.

The man, identified as 29-year-old from Tolleson, Arizona, was referred by agents to a subsequent inspection after a sniffer dog alerted officials to an odor.

Earlier this week, Police officials confirmed an estimated $2 million worth of methamphetamine and marijuana had been seized in Arizona.

The massive drug bust uncovered around 200 pounds of meth and 3,500 pounds of marijuana, according to a statement from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

The department co-operated with Customs and Border Protection agents as part of the County Drug Suppression Task Force (MCDST).

Authorities that were working near Gila Bend located “two trucks avoid a border checkpoint and drive into an uninhabited desert area with their lights off,” the sheriff’s office said.

Tire deflation devices were activated, and the vehicles “were rendered inoperable” after driving over them, they confirmed.
