Homeland Security agents are investigating after the Border Patrol seized more than $8 million worth of meth at a Laredo port of entry. The seizure happened on Monday at the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge. Border Patrol officers referred a 34-year-old man driving a tractor pulling an empty trailer for secondary inspection. Officers found more than 900-pounds of meth inside the truck. They seized the truck, the trailer, and the drugs, and arrested the driver and the passenger.
“Methamphetamine is a controlling and highly addictive chemical substance that gravely affects its consumers,” said Port Director Alberto Flores, Laredo Port of Entry. “Officers at the Laredo Port of Entry utilize their enforcement strategies to target high-risk commodities and intercept these deadly narcotics at the border.”
