Cocaine, methamphetamine seized at Lincoln-Juarez Bridge in Laredo

LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers made two big drug busts at a Laredo port of entry recently.

The latest incident happened Sunday during a routine examination of a 2003 Toyota Tundra at Lincoln-Juarez Bridge.

A news release stated that officers discovered four packages containing 21 pounds of methamphetamine hidden in a pickup truck driven by a 32-year-old man from Duncanville. The drugs had an estimated street value of $317,520.

On Friday, officers discovered 36 pounds of cocaine hidden in a 2006 BMW X3 that was being driven by a 31-year-old female Mexican national. The street value of the drugs was estimated at $1.1 million.

Both drivers were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations agents for further investigation.
