Border Officers Seize Methamphetamine Worth Over $590K at World Trade Bridge
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized narcotics in a single enforcement action that totaled over $590,000 in street value.
“Methamphetamine is a powerful and highly addictive chemical substance that gravely affects its consumers,” said Laredo Port of Entry Port Director Alberto Flores, “Officers at the Laredo Port of Entry utilize their enforcement tactics to target high-risk commodities and intercept these deadly narcotics before they can harm our communities.”
The incident occurred on Oct. 21, 2021, at the World Trade Bridge, after CBP officers encountered a daily express consignment truck manifesting one mini split air conditioning unit arriving from Mexico. The 2019 Freightliner truck was referred for a canine and non-intrusive imaging system inspection, resulting in the discovery of 29.93 pounds of alleged methamphetamine within the commodity.
The narcotics have an estimated street value of $598,769.
CBP seized the narcotics, and the case was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) special agents for further investigation.
