U.S. Customs and Border Protection Seizes $3M in Drugs

Liquid methamphetamine found in commercial truck from Mexico.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently intercepted a shipment of drugs worth $3.1 million in a cargo facility at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge in Texas. A commercial truck carrying automotive parts that arrived from Mexico was referred by CBP officers for further inspection.

During the secondary inspection 155.5 pounds of alleged liquid methamphetamine that had been concealed in the truck’s fuel tanks was discovered and seized by the CBP Office of Field Operations. The narcotics were turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration who will continue the investigation.

Carlos Rodriguez, Port Director, Hidalgo/ Pharr/Anzalduas, said“Our officers’ resourcefulness and thoroughness in conducting their enforcement examinations counter schemes utilized by drug-smuggling organizations.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan as he leads the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
  • For the CBP agents working to protect the United States from drug smuggling.
  • For the president’s administration as they continue to battle against illicit drugs entering the nation.
