U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized nearly 1,349 pounds of methamphetamine at the Pharr International Bridges Cargo Facility on February 15. Per a report by CBS 11 News, the drugs are worth $18,800,000.

Port Director Carlos Rodriguez of Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry attributed the interception to the officers who worked with diligence as a team.

“This massive methamphetamine smuggling attempt was stopped, thanks to our vigilant officers who continue to work as a team and use all available tools and resources to their full potential,” Rodriguez said.

Authorities said that the drugs were stashed in boxes in a commercial tractor trailer coming in from Mexico.

No further information regarding the case is available. However, agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations will continue to investigate the case.
