CBP Officers make meth bust at Santa Teresa Port

U.S. Customs and Border Protection(CBP) Officers working at the Santa Teresa port of entry seized 26.46 pounds of methamphetamine on Tuesday, June 30.

CBP officials share that the seizure was made shortly before noon when a 2010 Chevrolet Express arrived at the Santa Teresa international cargo facility from Mexico.

The vehicle contained a shipment of aluminum containers described as “machinery tools.”

The primary CBP Officer referred the vehicle for an intensive inspection, and an X-ray system revealed “anomalies in an aluminum container in the cargo space of the vehicle.”

“A white powdery substance was extracted and tested positive for the properties of methamphetamine,” CBP officials shared. “A total of 26.46 pounds of methamphetamine were extracted from the aluminum container.”

The drugs were seized and the investigation continues.

“A multi-layered inspection involving an x-ray system and officer experience were critical in this significant narcotic seizure,” said CBP Santa Teresa Port Director Fernando Thome, “CBP is committed to keeping dangerous drugs out of our country and communities.”
