Eagle Pass CBP Officers Seize Meth Worth $1.2 Million

EAGLE PASS, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seize nearly 62 pounds of methamphetamine at the Eagle Pass Port of Entry.
“Our CBP officers maintain constant vigilance in protecting the United States,” said Port Director John Brandt, Eagle Pass Port of Entry. “Keeping dangerous drugs from entering our country is one of the key missions of CBP.”
On Dec. 13, CBP officers at Camino Real International Bridge inspected a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup as it arrived in the United States from Mexico. During the secondary inspection, with the assistance of non-intrusive inspection technology (x-ray), officers discovered anomalies within the vehicle. CBP officers consequently seized a total of 61.9 pounds of alleged methamphetamine worth an estimated $1,238,103.
The male driver, a 50-year-old U.S. citizen and resident of Corsicana, was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations for further investigation.
The Office of Field Operations is the primary organization within U.S. Customs and Border Protection tasked with an anti-terrorism mission at our nation’s ports. CBP officers screen all people, vehicles and goods entering the United States while facilitating the flow of legitimate trade and travel. Their mission also includes carrying out border-related duties, including narcotics interdiction, enforcing immigration and trade laws, and protecting the nation's food supply and agriculture industry from pests and diseases.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
