A 16-year-old U.S. citizen was arrested Sunday after he attempted to use a remote-controlled car to smuggle methamphetamine across the U.S.-Mexico border. 

The bundle is estimated to be worth more than $100,000.

Agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) stationed in San Diego saw a person with duffel bags walking along the secondary border wall. Other agents responded to the scene and found the suspect hiding in thick brush near the border.

When an agent approached the boy, he had a remote-controlled car and two large duffel bags in his possession. The agent questioned the boy and searched his bags, discovering he is a 16-year-old U.S citizen. 

The agent found 50 packages of methamphetamine and arrested the teen on drug smuggling charges. CBP said the 55.84-pound bundle has an estimated value of $106,096.
