El Paso, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers have seized two high-powered rifles and 4,000 round of ammunition from a pickup truck heading across an El Paso bridge to Mexico.

A CBP statement issued Friday says the seizure came about 5;40 p.m. Wednesday at the Bridge of the Americas international crossing between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Officers chose an older-model pickup truck for a close inspection after the driver declared he had nothing to declare before leaving the country.

A search turned up ammunition boxes concealed in a wall panel of the truck. Agents say a more-intensive search turned up two AK-47 rifles, 4,000 rounds of ammunition and several high-capacity magazines concealed throughout the vehicle.

The driver, 24-year-old Mexican national Daniel Avalos Ruiz of Ciudad Juarez, remains in federal custody in the El Paso County jail without bond.

  2. The guns are shipped with the specifications as required by Federal Law making them completely safe for amateur and competition use. LARRY
