Eagle Pass Customs and Border Protection agents seized a shipment of $11 million worth of methamphetamine at the Eagle Pass Port of Entry No 2 International Bridge.
The seizure occurred last Saturday, June 27, when CBP officers assigned to the bridge sent a 1998 commercial bus for a secondary review.
Officers discovered 32 packets in cans containing 565.88 pounds (0.26 t) of liquid methamphetamine hidden within the bus floor area.
The narcotics have an estimated value of $11,317,534.
Federal agents confiscated the narcotics along with the bus. The case was turned over to special Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents for further investigation.
“Ensuring the passenger environment is a critical mission for CBP, and this significant seizure of methamphetamine underscores the need for our officers to always be vigilant and aware of the threat of narcotics while facilitating legal travel,” said the Port Director at Eagle Pass, Paul Del Rincon.
