Man suspected of hiding meth in underpants arrested at airport

A 32-year-old man was arrested Monday at Sacramento International Airport after he reportedly concealed bags of crystal methamphetamine in his underpants, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department reports.
About 4:30 a.m., sheriff's deputies assigned to the airport responded to a security checkpoint in Terminal A. Transportation Security Administration personnel had detained Enrique Garcia after he refused to submit to a secondary screening while attempting to travel on an outbound flight, according to a department news release.

An investigation revealed that Garcia had concealed the crystal methamphetamine, which was detected during the screening process. Garcia was taken into custody and transported to the Sacramento County Main Jail.

He was booked on suspicion of unlawful possession of methamphetamine for sale and transportation of methamphetamine for sale, and is being held on $1 million bail.
