On October 12, 2021, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized a shipment of over 1,100 pounds of methamphetamine at an international border crossing in South Texas. Bob Price of Breitbart News observed that “The attempted smuggling incident took place at the Pharr International Bridge Cargo Facility.”
On October 9, several CBP officers tasked with patrolling an international cargo facility in Pharr, Texas, saw a tractor-trailer come by for inspection as it tried to enter the country from Mexico.
As an officer was completing an interview with the tractor-trailer driver, the driver was instructed to go through a secondary inspection station for continued inspection per information that Price was able to obtain from CBP officials stationed in South Texas.
According to Price, the CBP officials put the tractor-trailer vehicle through “a non-intrusive imaging inspection and a cursory search from a K-9 trained to detect drugs and human cargo.” The first inspection compelled the CBP officers to conduct a physical search of the trailer.
