NEWS / Border Patrol Agents Seize Nearly 4 Tons of Marijuana in 2 Days


Edinburg, Texas ─ Nearly four tons of marijuana were seized since November 7, by U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Rio Grande Valley Sector.

The largest seizure occurred at the Sarita Checkpoint on U.S. Highway 77 when agents found more than 3,000 pounds of marijuana hidden inside a tractor-trailer.

Another sizable load of marijuana was seized that same day near Abram, Texas, when agents saw a suspicious Chevrolet Suburban traveling north from the Rio Grande at a high rate of speed. After the driver noticed he was being followed by agents, he drove through a chain-link fence and abandoned the vehicle south of the levee. Inside the Suburban, agents found nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana.

Several additional seizures on November 7 and November 8, brought the total amount of marijuana seized to nearly 8,000 pounds, with an estimated value of more than $6.3 million. The drugs were turned over to the appropriate authorities for further investigation.

To report suspicious activity, call the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sectorís toll-free telephone number at (800) 863-9382.
