U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized $11 million worth of narcotics in four separate busts at the southern border this week.
The seizures all took place over the course of three days in Laredo, according to a CBP news release, and included the alleged captures of over 430 pounds of methamphetamine, 134 pounds of cocaine, 41 pounds of heroin and 16 pounds of fentanyl.
Each substance was being brought into the country by land from Mexico.
“In an effort to secure our Nation’s borders, as these narcotics seizures clearly illustrate, CBP has implemented enforcement strategies that have furthered the disruption of dangerous drugs entering the country,” Eugene Crawford, the acting port director of the Laredo Port of Entry, said.
