CBP Officers Seize 1,300 Pounds of Marijuana at Del Rio Port of Entry

 

DEL RIO, Texas - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Del Rio Port of Entry recently seized a load of suspected marijuana hidden inside a commercial trailer.

 

“Smugglers go to great lengths to get their illicit products into the U.S.,” said Port Director Alberto D. Perez, Del Rio Port of Entry. “The training, experience and dedication of our frontline CBP officers has prevented yet another load of contraband from reaching our communities.”

 

Shortly after noon on Nov. 8, CBP officers at the Del Rio Port of Entry import lot targeted a shipment of silica sand as it arrived from Mexico for an intensive inspection. During the inspection, CBP canine and non-intrusive imaging equipment confirmed the officer’s suspicion with the discovery of 65 packages of alleged marijuana, weighing a total of 1,305 pounds, hidden in the shipment of silica sand destined for St. Louis, Missouri.

 

CBP’s Del Rio Port of Entry is part of the Joint Task Force-West South Texas Corridor, which leverages federal, state and local resources to combat transnational criminal organizations.
