LAREDO, Texas—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers at the Juarez Lincoln Bridge intercepted methamphetamine totaling $2.6 million in street value.

“Drug trafficking organizations use continually evolving concealment techniques, to avoid detection,” said Acting Port Director Eugene Crawford, Laredo Port of Entry. “Fortunately, CBP is equipped to stay abreast of the new trends.”
