125 Pounds of Meth, Cocaine, Heroin Seized at Texas Border Crossing


U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in South Texas seized more than 125 pounds of methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin in two separate incidents. The seizure prevented more than $2 million in illicit drugs from reaching the streets of American cities.

CBP officers assigned to the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge in Laredo, Texas, observed a 2007 Dodge Ram truck approaching for entry into the United States on October 6. Officers referred the driver, a 24-year-old U.S. citizen, to a secondary inspection station, according to information obtained from CBP officials in Texas.

Officers scanned the pickup truck with a non-intrusive imaging system and detected anomalies. A physical search of the truck led to the discovery of 29.14 pounds of cocaine. Officials estimate the value of the cocaine to be $224,740. Officers seized the drugs and the pickup truck. They placed the driver under arrest.
