CBP Officers Seize 5,000 Rounds of Ammunition at the Hidalgo International Bridge

HIDALGO, Texas—U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations (OFO) at the Hidalgo International Bridge intercepted 5,000 rounds of ammunition.

“The undeclared exportation of weapons and ammunition into Mexico is illegal. Our CBP officers prevented this ammunition from reaching Mexico thanks to their diligent inspection work,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez, Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry.

On January 27, 2022, CBP officers conducting outbound enforcement operations at the Hidalgo International Bridge encountered a white Chevrolet sedan driving southbound to Mexico. The vehicle was driven by 23-year-old U.S. citizen.  A CBP officer referred the vehicle for further inspection. After physically inspecting the vehicle, officers discovered 5,000 rounds of 7.62×39 rifle ammunition as well as $4,555 which was also seized as proceeds of illicit activity.

CBP OFO seized the ammunition and vehicle, arrested the driver and the case remains under investigation by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI).
