Border Agents Seize Nearly $1 MILLION Load of Cocaine From Big Rig Arriving From Mexico

Pharr, TX — U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBO) agents seized nearly $1 million worth of cocaine from a big rig arriving from Mexico last week.

The bust occurred on October 21, 2021, at the Pharr International Bridge Cargo Facility.




 

CBP officers encountered a commercial tractor-trailer and referred the conveyance for further inspection.

After physically inspecting the conveyance, officers discovered 51 packages of alleged cocaine weighing 124.91 pounds (56.66 kg) concealed within the tractor.

CBP estimated the street value of the narcotics to be $960,500.

The shipment of drugs was seized along with the vehicle.




 

No information was provided about the truck driver as the case remains under investigation by agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations.
