“Officers at the #World Trade Bridge continue to excel in their #targeting #strategies, remaining vigilant and on the forefront of border security operations,” said Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry. The seizure occurred on Friday, Jan 28, at the #World Trade Bridge, after CBP officers encountered a 2019 International tractor manifesting a #shipment of air conditioning units arriving from #Mexico. The tractor was driven by a 29-year-old male Mexican citizen. The tractor and the #trailer were referred for a canine and non-intrusive imaging system inspection, resulting in the discovery of 167 packages containing 3461.25 pounds of alleged #marijuana within the commodity.
CBP officers seized the narcotics. The driver was arrested, and the case was turned over to U.S. #Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) special #agents for further investigation
