An unusual bulge around a man's waistline yielded nearly two pounds of crystal methamphetamine during a search at an El Paso border crossing.

Port director William Molaski said an officer had identified the pedestrian as someone who needed additional scrutiny.

The suspect, from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, was taken into custody following the search Friday.
