Customs and Border Protection Officers Seize $429,844 worth of Marijuana

ROMA, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Roma Port of Entry seized a significant amount of marijuana valued at more than $400,000 in one enforcement action at the Roma International Bridge.

“Our frontline officers maintain constant vigilance in the cargo environment and every now and then we encounter narcotics loads of this magnitude but they are atypical,” said Port Director Andres Guerra, Roma Port of Entry.  “This interception illustrates the quality enforcement work that our officers do on a daily basis.”

The seizure occurred on December 19 when a CBP officer referred a 2004 Kenworth tractor trailer hauling a shipment of Saltillo tile for secondary examination.  A (canine) and non-intrusive inspection by CBP officers resulted in the discovery of 180 packages containing 2,149 pounds of alleged marijuana that has an estimated street value of $429,844.

CBP officers seized the narcotics and turned the case over to Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents for further investigation.
