On March 25, border patrol officers said they noticed a 2018 Kenworth tractor and trailer carrying a shipment of waterproof sealant from Mexico.
"Officers assigned to our cargo facilities utilize their enforcement expertise to target these high-risk commodities. It has led to the discovery of dangerous hard narcotics," said Alberto Flores, the port director at the Laredo Port of Entry. "Large-scale seizures, such as this one, exemplify our mission priorities in securing the border."
After officers conducted a canine and imaging system inspection, they said they found 219.13 pounds of alleged methamphetamine hidden inside barrels.
Officials say the drugs have an estimated street value of $4,382,744.
The case was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) special agents for further investigation.
