U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Juarez-Lincoln Bridge uncovered methamphetamine totaling over $1.3 million in street value during a bust at the Texas-Mexico border in Laredo.
“Drug smuggling organizations attempt to smuggle contraband into the U.S. daily,” said Port Director Gregory Alvarez, Laredo Port of Entry. “Though their methods range in complexity, our officers maintain their vigilance through vigorous enforcement operations.”
The drugs were discovered hidden inside a 2007 Chevrolet Express van making entry from Mexico. The narcotics have a combined estimated street value of $1,388,898.
