Officers Seize Mega Shipment of Cocaine at Southern Border


Officers from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Field Operations have seized a major shipment of cocaine at the southern border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Roma Port of Entry cargo facility have seized approximately $2.5 million worth of cocaine found within a tractor-trailer.

Packages containing 329 pounds of cocaine seized by CBP officers from Roma Port of Entry.

“Our frontline CBP officers at Roma Port of Entry seized a significant amount of hard narcotics in the cargo environment utilizing an effective combination of inspections experience and technology and helped keep our community safe in the process,” said Andres Guerra, Port Director at the Roma Port of Entry.

On Feb. 24, 2022, Customs and Border Protection officers assigned to the Roma International Bridge cargo facility encountered a commercial tractor-trailer arriving from Mexico.

One CBP officer referred the trailer to a team for further inspection using both non-intrusive imaging and screening by a canine team.

After the officers conducted a thorough secondary examination of the vehicle with the dogs, they discovered packages containing 329.37 pounds of cocaine hidden inside the trailer.

The Customs and Border Protection officers then turned the driver over to the Roma Police Department for further investigation.
