U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found almost 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds) of methamphetamine in a man's vehicle when he was trying to enter the United States.

Officers put the vehicle through secondary inspection, where they found about meth in tablet form. 

"Our officers can be proud today knowing they stopped 10 pounds of drugs from making it to the streets of America," said Michael Fox, port director, in a news release. 

The driver will be charged with importing a controlled substance and intent to distribute a controlled substance.
