Over $840,000 worth of meth seized in three events in one day at the southern border

EAGLE PASS, TX – Three separate busts in one day yielded a methamphetamine seizure worth over $840,000 at the southern border last week.

Port Director Pete Beattie, Eagle Pass Port of Entry, said in a statement, “Our CBP officers scored a triple play; taking down three loads of methamphetamine with a combined total street value of more than $847,000, all on the same day. These seizures reflect our continued dedication to CBP’s border security mission.”

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has been hosting heavy interdiction operations recently, including in Eagle Pass. The most recent major yield of methamphetamine occurred on February 27 from three separate events.

Each time, CBP sent a vehicle attempting to cross the border into the US from Mexico to a secondary inspection, where agents can use more thorough inspection techniques, including the use of K9s.

The three seizures, totaling approximately $847,362 in street value, weighed about 32.4 pounds, followed by 31.39 pounds, and then 30.99 pounds. The drugs were located inside jars of lard.

I appreciate and respect Law Enforcement Today's excellent reporting! Liberals will likely twist this fentanyl confiscation as a victory, even though it is likely a minuscule amount of that which is easily getting through via the border invasion. Also, how is the toxic confiscated product being disposed? History reveals shady dealings of such confiscations.
