Laredo CBP Officers Seize Methamphetamine Worth Over $2.5 Million at the Juarez-Lincoln Bridge

LAREDO, Texas—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers at the Juarez-Lincoln Bridge intercepted hard narcotics totaling over $2.5 million in street value.

“Seizures like this one are a prime example of the importance that CBP officers play in our overall national border security mission and protecting the public from illegal narcotics,” said Port Director Gregory Alvarez, Laredo Port of Entry.

The seizure occurred on Friday, May 15, after CBP officers assigned to the Juarez-Lincoln Bridge intercepted a commercial bus arriving from Mexico. The 2014 Volvo bus was referred for a canine and non-intrusive imaging system inspection resulting in the discovery of 127.16 pounds of alleged methamphetamine concealed within the conveyance.  A 44-year-old male Mexican citizen was arrested in connection to the case.

The narcotics have an estimated street value of $2,546,226.

CBP seized the narcotics. The case was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) special agents for further investigation.
