LAREDO – A major border bust has taken more than $1 million in suspected drugs off the streets.
Border officers found two loads of suspected crystal methamphetamine in separate incidents at a Laredo bridge crossing Monday.
The Customs and Border Protection said officers found the contraband in utility trailers pulled by trucks at the Lincoln-Juarez bridge.
In one incident, they found 33 pounds of meth hidden in four packages, and 38 pounds in the other incident.
They said the seized substance has a street value of nearly $1.5 million.
