Border Officers Intercept $2 Million in Cocaine at World Trade Bridge

LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers intercepted cocaine with an estimated street value of more than $2 million in one enforcement action at the World Trade Bridge.

“Our frontline CBP officers in the cargo environment effectively apply inspection experience and modern technology, which led directly to this significant narcotics interception,” said Acting Port Director Eugene Crawford, Laredo Port of Entry. “Seizures like this one underscore the reality of the drug threat and our commitment to the border security mission.”
