LAREDO, Texas—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers at the Juarez-Lincoln Bridge seized methamphetamine that totaled over $3.3 million in street value.

“Methamphetamine abuse is a significant public health concern throughout the country,” said Acting Port Director Andrew Douglas, Laredo Port of Entry. “Through vigorous enforcement efforts, CBP will continue to intercept this hard narcotic and prevent it from reaching our communities.”

The vehicle was driven by a 72-year-old male U.S. citizen traveling from Mexico. Following a canine and non-intrusive imaging system inspection, CBP officers discovered a total of 168.08 pounds of alleged methamphetamine within the subject’s belongings.

The narcotics have an estimated street value of $3,361,574.

CBP officers seized the narcotics and vehicle. The driver was arrested and the case was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) special agents for further investigation.
