U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized cocaine with an estimated street value of more than $11.8 million in Laredo, Texas, on Friday.

According to a news release, the bust occurred at the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge when a 2016 Stoughton trailer manifesting a shipment of baby wipes was referred for a secondary inspection.

Investigators found 1,935 packages containing nearly 1,533 pounds of suspected cocaine concealed within the shipment.

“This seizure is a prime example of border security management and how it helps prevent dangerous narcotics from reaching our communities,” Port Director Alberto Flores with the Laredo Port of Entry stated.

The agency seized the narcotics, and special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigation are investigating.

  3. Some odd weight packages, got to make them the size of the baby wipes wrapper. 3/4 of a ton lost. Several millions. Win most but lose a few gamblers

    1. Nuevo Laredo has so much traffic crossing from all parts of Mexico that this is likely not a CDN load. Plus, they should have their routes so locked down that a load this size probably doesn’t cross at once, and they know the times, bridges, and border patrol lanes to go to.
