CBP Agents Seize $1.9M Worth Of Meth, Heroin, Cocaine & Fentanyl At AZ PoE

Published

on

The flow of poison coming into the U.S. from Mexican cartels continues. A little over a week ago CBP seized $1.6 million worth of heroin, cocaine, & amphetamine at a Texas border crossing point. A week before that CBP seized $1,150,000 worth of heroin and cocaine that officers discovered within a commercial truck arriving from Mexico. A few days ago, CBP foiled an attempt to smuggle almost $700,000 worth of cocaine into Texas, also. This is why we need more wall, and more Border Patrol agents.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports:

“TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations, officers at the Port of Nogales seized more than 515 pounds of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and fentanyl over the past 5 days. 11 U.S. citizens and a Mexican national are in custody for their connection to the drug seizures.

Several of the most significant seizures include the following;

Early Friday morning, officers at the Dennis DeConcini Crossing referred a 47-year-old female for further inspection of her Ford sedan when she attempted to enter the U.S. After a CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of a scent it was trained to detect, officers removed more than 120 packages from throughout the vehicle. The packages, which were determined to be methamphetamine, weighed 123 pounds, with an estimated value of worth nearly $111,000.

A short time later, officers at the DeConcini Crossing referred a 38-year-old man for an additional search of his Jeep SUV as he attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. An alert by a CBP canine to the right rear side of the vehicle, led officers to remove 40 packages of meth, which weighed nearly 44 pounds, with an estimated value of more than $39,000.

That afternoon, officers at the DeConcini Crossing referred a 19-year-old woman for further inspection of her Chevy SUV, when she attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico. A canine alert led officers to the discovery of more than 30 packages of heroin, within the doors of the vehicle. The drugs weighed almost 87 pounds, with an estimated value of more than $989,000.

Monday morning, a 30-year-old Tucson woman was referred for a secondary inspection of her Nissan sedan, as she attempted to cross back into the U.S. from Mexico. A canine alert led officers to beneath the seats, where they removed nearly 50 packages of drugs. Five of the packages contained almost 13 pounds of fentanyl, worth nearly $137,000. Three of the packages contained more than five pounds of heroin, worth over $61,000. And the balance of the packages were identified as nearly 41 pounds of meth, worth near $37,000.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicles. The subjects were arrested and then turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.”

Good! Give him the maximum sentence!

CBP is reporting:

“EAGLE PASS, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Eagle Pass station arrested a Mexican Mafia member during a failed human smuggling attempt, Oct. 2.

Agents assisted Maverick County Sheriff’s deputies on a traffic stop in Eagle Pass and discovered three illegal aliens concealed in the back seat of the vehicle. The driver and front-seat passenger, both U.S. citizens, and the three illegal aliens were arrested and taken to the Eagle Pass South Station for processing.

“We enjoy an excellent relationship with our local law enforcement partners” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “I applaud the Maverick County Sheriff’s Deputies and our agents, who worked together to stop a convicted felon from smuggling illegal aliens into our communities.”

The driver, identified as Juan Alberto Garcia, 39, is a self-admitted member of the Mexican Mafia and has an extensive criminal history. Garcia has multiple felony convictions throughout Texas for drug-related offenses and other crimes including assault, burglary and theft. He and the front-seat passenger will both be charged with 8 USC § 1324 – Alien Smuggling, and face up to 10 years in prison.
