HIDALGO, Texas (Gray News) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers intercepted several pounds of methamphetamine from over the weekend that was heading into Texas.

On Sunday, agents at the Office of Field Operations at the Hidalgo International Bridge reported they stopped $1.1 million worth of alleged methamphetamine from making it through the border crossing.

CBP officers assigned to the international bridge say they encountered a white Jeep SUV making entry from Mexico.

An officer referred the vehicle for further inspection and after physically inspecting the vehicle, which included utilizing non-intrusive imaging equipment and screening by a canine team, officers discovered nine packages of alleged methamphetamine weighing 79 pounds concealed within the vehicle.

“Our CBP officers used all of our available tools and resources to thwart this smuggling attempt and prevented these harmful narcotics from getting to American streets,” said Port Director Carlos Rodriguez, Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry.

Agents seized the narcotics and the vehicle and report the case remains under investigation by special agents with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations.

    6. 1000 Mr humble, you add the many dents they do in a week, that's equals to something greater. Have hope.

    7. A dent? Thats what assholes like the crippled texas governor wld like you to believe. Truth is busts like this happen all the time in the 956 area of sputh texas. But how much get thru while this one shipment got busted? Even with the entire border at war cartel factions vs cartel factions or cartels vs state government and even with bosses going to jail at least in lower 956 drugs keep pouring in. No shortage of bud or coke or any other shit.
