A Los Angeles man was arrested two weeks ago after he was caught by the TSA at SFO trying transport six kilograms of methamphetamine to Australia.

23-year-old Jauan Manuel Paz-Guzman is in the custody of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, after the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Bureau at SFO contacted them about the drugs allegedly found in Paz-Guzman's luggage on June 27.

The luggage was described as "two suitcases full of illegal drugs," and photos from the sheriff's office show multiple wrapped packets of meth, which reportedly totaled six kilograms.

According to a release from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, Paz-Guzman had purchased a ticket for a flight to Australia that day. The drugs were reportedly found through routine TSA screening of luggage.

The San Mateo County Narcotics Task Force responded to SFO after Paz-Guzman's arrest, and assumed control of the investigation from the San Francisco Police Department. This is standard protocol for criminal investigations at the airport — the SFPD handles day-to-day law enforcement at the airport, while the sheriff handles criminal cases.

Paz-Guzman was subsequently booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City on charges of transportation of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, and burglary. The reason for the latter charge was not made clear.
