CUSTOMS AND BORDER Patrol agents intercepted more than $12 million worth of methamphetamine that crossed into the U.S. inside a truck carrying frozen strawberries from Mexico.
The agency on Tuesday said officers working at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge cargo facility in Texas intercepted the truck that held 906 pounds of meth worth $12.7 million. The discovery was made on Feb. 16 after imaging equipment and dogs used to inspect the truck revealed 350 packages of what appeared to be methamphetamine hidden within the trailer.
