Two men were arrested by Border Patrol agents Thursday and charged with smuggling one million dollars worth of cocaine on Interstate 15 in Temecula.
The men were arrested in a 1999 Chevrolet Malibu sedan on northbound I-15 near the Border Patrol checkpoint.
After a K-9 union alerted agents, they searched the vehicle and found 32 bundles of cocaine stashed in the front wheel wells and bumper.
The bundles of cocaine weighed 76 pounds and had an estimated street value of $987,00.
The alleged smugglers, both of whom are 30 years of age, are in custody at a Riverside County detention facility and are facing state narcotics smuggling charges
