Border Agents Find $3.2 Million In Drugs In Cookie Shipment

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports officers confiscated more than $3 million worth of methamphetamine found inside a truck at the border in Laredo.

The drugs were hidden in a truck that was supposed to be hauling cookies.

“CBP has seen a significant uptick in attempts to smuggle methamphetamine at ports of entry,” said Acting Port Director Andrew Douglas, Laredo Port of Entry. “CBP officers utilize inspections experience and couple that with advanced imaging technology to detect, interdict and seize illicit narcotics arriving at the port of entry.”
