Dec 7, 2015Carrots, cucumbers and cocaine – oh my!
According to Fox 7 News, cocaine and marijuana were found in two separate shipments of produce at the Texas border.
Here’s more from the story: “Within a matter of hours, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office of Field Operations seized almost $2 million in cocaine and marijuana from two separate shipments of produce at the Pharr International Bridge in south Texas.”
“This was definitely a productive weekend at our Pharr, Texas cargo facility,” said Acting Port Director Javier Cantu, Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry. “Our frontline officers accomplished these extraordinary seizures of narcotics while still processing legitimate importations, an outstanding and sometimes unnoticed aspect of our job duties.”
