DOUGLAS, AZ (CBS5) -

A California man has been arrested at the southern Arizona border after 66 pounds of liquid methamphetamine allegedly was found in his vehicle's gasoline tank.

Vasa Major, 41, of Campbell, CA, applied for entry in Douglas, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers.

Officers directed Major to a secondary inspection area, where officers noticed his gas tank appeared to have been modified.

A CBP narcotics detection dog confirmed the presence of drugs. After officers removed the fuel tank, they reported finding nine containers of liquid meth valued at more than $1 million.

The nearly 8 1/2 gallons of liquid meth was seized.

Major was turned over to federal immigration officials.
