$2.3 million worth of meth seized from truck at Texas border crossing


U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers recently seized millions of dollars worth of illegal drugs from a truck arriving from Mexico into Texas.

The drugs were discovered on September 9, 2022, at the Pharr International Bridge Cargo Facility located in Pharr, Texas.

CBP officers referred a tractor trailer entering the U.S. from Mexico for a secondary inspection.

Using non-intrusive inspection systems and a physical search of the vehicle, CBP found 66.75 pounds of alleged methamphetamine concealed within the trailer.

The estimated street value of the seized drugs is $2,384,668, according to CBP.

The drugs, truck, and trailer were seized by CBP. The case will be investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations.

“Our CBP officers relied on their experience and all available tools and resources to thwart this smuggling attempt,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez, Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry.
