PROGRESO, Texas – Officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations (OFO) at the Progreso International Bridge seized over 19 pounds of alleged crystal methamphetamine Monday evening.

“Intercepting illegal drugs from entering the United States is one of CBP’s top priorities,” said Port Director Walter Weaver, Progreso Port of Entry. “I applaud the officers for their continued vigilance as they intercepted and prevented these dangerous narcotics from not only entering the country but our communities.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The seizure occurred on Monday evening, April 9, when CBP officers at the Progreso International Bridge referred a vehicle driven by a 19-year-old male United States citizen from Austin, Texas for a secondary inspection. In secondary, a CBP canine alerted to the vehicle. Officers subsequently discovered 19.09 pounds of alleged crystal methamphetamine concealed within the vehicle’s interior.
