The two ingenious smugglers are suspected of using a ramp to drive over the border barricade near Calexico, in the black Infiniti vehicle.

Agents seized the bundles and arrested the driver and passenger, both Mexican citizens, before turning them over to the Drug Enforcement Agency for further investigation.
