Agents uncover third largest meth bust in US Border Patrol history 


Agents made the third largest methamphetamine bust in Border Patrol history in Texas last week. 

The contraband was uncovered at the Falfurrias Border Patrol Station in Texas on December 8th. 

According to Local 23 News, a tractor trailer was referred to the secondary inspection area for an immigration inspection on the driver. During the immigration inspection, agents discovered 1,440 Clorox bottles filled with 3,000 pounds of liquid meth. 

The seized meth has an estimated $100M street value. 

“This historical seizure is a prime example of our Agents’ efforts to continuously impact and degrade Transnational Criminal Organizations exploiting the Rio Grande Valley,” Gloria I. Chavez, RGV Sector Chief Patrol Agent said. “I am extremely proud of our Border Patrol Agents and how the interdiction kept these dangerous narcotics out of our communities.”
