“I congratulate our frontline officers for their firm commitment to carry out the CBP mission and protect the public from illegal narcotics,” said Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry.

The seizure occurred on Saturday, Jan. 26 at the Colombia-Solidarity International Bridge when a CBP officer referred a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan hauling a 2018 utility trailer for a secondary examination. During a canine and non-intrusive imaging inspection, CBP officers discovered 21 packages containing a total of 28 pounds of alleged heroin within the trailer. The narcotics have an estimated street value of $752,400.

CBP officers seized the narcotics and the vehicle. The case was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations (ICE-HSI) special agents for further investigation.
