Two people were arrested at San Francisco International Airport late last month after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers discovered more than $500,000 worth of cocaine and crystal methamphetamine in their luggage, authorities said today. Customs officers arrested Pedro Daniel Rodriguez, 21, and Yuniba Elizabeth Cordero, 22, on Dec. 29 and seized 2.24 kilos of cocaine worth about $158,000 and 6.5 kilos of methamphetamine worth more than $351,000, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The pair, both U.S. citizens, had arrived at SFO from Mexico and were referred for routine inspection, agency officials said. The drugs had been stashed in false sides of the luggage, but upon X-raying the bags, customs officers noticed anomalies in the image and discovered the contraband, according to the agency. Rodriquez and Cordero were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for further processing.
