Smugglers attempt to cross southern border with $37 million worth of Meth

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations (OFO)  stopped a smuggling attempt of $37,000,000 worth of methamphetamine on Saturday.

The seizure occurred at Pharr International Bridge in Pharr, Texas when CBP discovered the narcotics below the floor of a tractor/trailer appearing to hold a commercial shipment of tomatoes, according to a press release.

“This interception of methamphetamines is certainly on the list of the more significant drug seizures for the Port of Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas and will definitely impact this type of illicit activity,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez.

Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is currently investigating the package.
