CBP Officers Seize Over $3.1 Million Worth of Meth at the Border

LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers intercepted a significant amount of hard narcotics with an estimated street value of more than $3.1 million in one enforcement action at the Gateway to the Americas International Bridge over the weekend.

“Our CBP officers’ knowledge of concealment methods and the technology they utilize on a daily basis played a key role in the discovery,” said Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry. “CBP officers display exemplary vigilance in keeping dangerous narcotics from entering our country.”

The seizure occurred on Saturday, Mar. 29, at the Gateway to the Americas International Bridge when a CBP officer referred a 2002 GMC Yukon for a secondary examination. Upon a canine and non-intrusive imaging inspection, CBP officers discovered 27 packages containing a total of 155 pounds of alleged methamphetamine within the vehicle.

The narcotics have an estimated street value of $3,103,194.
