"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seize more than $233,000 in meth at the World Trade Bridge.

On May 24, a CBP officer referred an express consignment truck hauling various boxes of commercial merchandise for secondary inspection.

Further physical examination of an electric boiler resulted in the discovery of 22 packages containing a total of 26 pounds of meth within the commodity.

The narcotics had an estimated street value of $233,342. authorities said.

“Our frontline officers continue to maintain their vigilance while examining express consignment goods and uncovered a significant methamphetamine load,” said Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry.

“The use of non-intrusive inspection technology coupled with officer experience contributed to this seizure.”

CBP seized the meth. Homeland Security Investigations special agents took over the investigation.

  1. More like $17-20k street value.. $233k if nuts, no one is going to break these 26 pounds down to 0.25g bags and sell it for top dollar.

    1. I believe the the 26 is a typo and they meant to put 260 . If you look at the bundles it's a lot more then 26

    2. Yeah you are probably right.. I also didn’t realize how large each one of them was also, that’s way more than a pound per package.

    3. I'm thinking they say 233k because they are estimating the value after it gets cut 12 times. The value is still too high. I went to the Nuff Room and my estimations are more like 120k. Nuff Said!!!

  2. sol.segun infobae,29,05, nini el mayor delito que lo peuden acusar,y por lo cual pasara probablemente el resto de sus dias en prision,el por la muerte de un informante de la DEA,en culiacan...

    1. Se merece cadena perpetua esa basurita humana

    2. Segun el informante de la DEA era menor de edad


  3. That meth is garbage

  4. Is there some kind of policy like they used to have back in the day like pot for Mexicans crossing the border with under a certain amount of weed they simply slapped their wrists and sent them back to Mexico lingo!!Dont come back here for 7 years!!🙀🇲🇽🇺🇸
