LAREDO, Texas—U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations (OFO) officers at Laredo Port of Entry intercepted a substantial amount of hard narcotics worth nearly $200,000 while conducting enforcement operations.

“The smuggling of illicit narcotics is a serious international health and security threat,” said Port Director Gregory Alvarez, Laredo Port of Entry. “CBP will continue to intercept these dangerous drugs through our vigorous enforcement actions.”

The seizure occurred on Wednesday, Mar. 11 at the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge when a CBP officer referred a 2003 Honda Accord driven by a 38-year-old male Mexican citizen arriving from Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas for a secondary examination. Following a canine and non-intrusive imaging system inspection, CBP officers discovered a total of 10 packages containing nearly 25 pounds of alleged cocaine within the vehicle.

The narcotics have an estimated street value of $192,440.

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

Border Patrol Discovers 6th Cross-Border Tunnel Near Yuma

This is why we have to remain vigilant despite building border walls & having BP agents on patrol. Cartels will do whatever it takes to smuggle illegal aliens & drugs across the border, which includes tunneling under walls. This is especially concerning as our country deals with the coronavirus pandemic, as illegals who have the disease could be entering & spreading it. At our first border wall project in Sunland Park, New Mexico, we installed underground motion sensors that detect tunneling & movement out to 40 feet on each side of the border. We also installed security cameras that run 24/7. We have had zero reported crossings or tunnels since we completed that wall.

YUMA, Ariz. –Yuma Sector Border Patrol and special agents with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) responded to a report of a possible sinkhole or tunnel at the international border west of the San Luis Port of Entry Monday.

Contractors working on the wall project had been moving soil in the area when they uncovered plywood and boards, which agents later determined to be possible tunnel shoring. After further excavation the incomplete tunnel measured approximately 8 to 12 ft below the surface of the ground at the location of the sinkhole. This is the sixth tunnel discovered in the Yuma Sector area of responsibility.

Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents, in conjunction with HSI special agents, began coordinating with our counterparts in Mexico to secure any possible entry locations. A cadre of Mexican military officials arrived and secured a similar sinkhole on the Mexican side of the fence, approximately 10-12 ft south of the original hole. Upon further excavation of the sinkhole on the Mexican side, military officials discovered an aluminum ladder approximately 6-8 ft in length within the hole which was promptly removed by the Mexican authorities at tunnel entrance in San Luis, Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico.

Law enforcement on both sides of the fence will continue to monitor and inspect the tunnel. Investigations are ongoing. Additional details will be released as they become available.
