Trucker Hauling Rock Panel Paste Busted at Southern Border With $1 MILLION of Meth

Laredo, TX – A trucker is under investigation after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) seized almost $1 million of methamphetamine from a big rig last week.

The incident occurred on Thursday, March 18th, at the World Trade Bridge, when CBP officers assigned to the Laredo Port of Entry cargo facility encountered a 2016 Kenworth tractor hauling a shipment of multipurpose rock panel paste arriving from Mexico.




 

CBP said the tractor and shipment were referred for a secondary inspection.

Following a canine and non-intrusive imaging system examination, CBP officers discovered a total of four containers holding 48.58 pounds of alleged methamphetamine concealed within the shipment.

CBP indicated the narcotics have an estimated street value of close to $1 million.

CBP seized the narcotics.




 

CBP did not disclose the identity of the truck driver as the case remains under investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations.
