Over $2.5 Million in Hard Narcotics Seized by CBP

Field officers discovered over 120 pounds of narcotics at Texas border.

Earlier this week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Laredo, Texas, apprehended a U.S. citizen who had 100 bags of methamphetamine hidden inside the car. The man was driving into the U.S. from Mexico and was directed by border officers to a secondary inspection location where the drugs were discovered.

CBP officers used the non-intrusive imaging system, a high tech examination method, to locate over 120 pounds of the narcotic. The case has been turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations agents for further investigation. The estimated street value of the seized narcotics is $2,576,736.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the officers of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection as they seek to prevent illegal substances from entry.
  • For U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as they work to protect the American public from opioid smuggling.
  • For the Department of Homeland Security agents as they investigate criminal activity.
