(U.S. Customs and Border Control)

Two people were arrested.

A K-9 officer sniffed out drugs inside of a plush toy dog at an immigration checkpoint in California this week.

On Wednesday, a Dodge Charger was referred for secondary inspection Blythe, California, after the canine alerted U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents to an odor it has been trained to detect.


The agents subsequently found two pounds of methamphetamine in a stuffed toy dog during a search of the vehicle.

Three small bags of meth were also found in the passenger's purse, authorities said.


In total, the drugs were worth $6,000, according to a report.

Two U.S. citizens were arrested.
