The rainbow pills were among 400,000 fentanyl pills and 152 pounds of methamphetamine at the Nogales, Arizona port of entry, officials said

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized hundreds of thousands of fentanyl pills at one Arizona checkpoint over the weekend, including many that were "rainbow-colored: in separate loads, officials said. 

The busts were made at the Nogales Point of Entry in Nogales, Arizona, Port Director Michael Humphries tweeted.

The drugs were parts of five loads in which 152 pounds of methamphetamine were found and the pills, of which 30,000 were colored, he said. 

The drugs were allegedly concealed through a variety of methods, he said, including in the back wall of a truck cab, the side walls of a vehicle and throughout a pickup truck.
