PHARR, Texas—U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations (OFO) at the Pharr International Bridge intercepted $2,305,000 worth of methamphetamine that was being smuggled from Mexico.

“Our officers’ continued resolve was evidenced once again with this outstanding seizure of hard narcotics,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez, Port of Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas. “This was definitely a good strike against the drug smuggling organizations and their goal of bringing dangerous drugs into our country.”
