Officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection say they discovered 489 grams of methamphetamine hidden inside peanuts at an express consignment hub in Memphis.

Officers X-rayed a shipment that was being sent from Mexico to Texas when they discovered some “suspicious anomalies,” the agency said. The manifest listed the shipment as “REGIONAL BREAD ROASTED PEANUTS REGIONAL DUST SWEET MADE OF CORN.”

Authorities said when they broke open the peanut shells, they discovered a white crystalline substance inside that tested positive for methamphetamine.
