U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers captured more than $9.5 million in hard drugs coming over the border at the World Trade Bridge in Texas on Tuesday, officials said.

Officers discovered and seized the narcotics after one officer noticed a 2004 Freightliner hauling a utility refrigerated trailer attempting to enter the United States, according to a CBP release.

 

Documents listed the vehicle as transporting roses, but it was soon referred for a secondary inspection.

“Following a canine and non-intrusive inspection system examination, CBP officers discovered a total of 1,033.96 pounds of alleged methamphetamine within the commodity,” the release read.

The total street value of the narcotics is estimated to sit at about $9,507,568, CBP reported.

 

“Officers in the cargo environment interdicted and seized millions worth in alleged methamphetamine, an addictive synthetic stimulant that causes a significant number of deaths nationwide,” Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry, said.:snip:

 15 illegal immigrants arrested for 'criminal trespass' in Eagle Pass by Texas troopers

Texas State Troopers arrested 15 illegal immigrants on Saturday for criminal trespass in Eagle Pass.

 

The apprehensions occurred right outside of Shelby Park, the site where Gov. Greg Abbott kicked out Biden's border agents and replaced them with state authorities to ensure border security amid the historic illegal immigration crisis.

The individuals arrested were from El Salvador and Nicaragua. They have all been transported to jail and will remain behind bars until court proceedings. Each of them faces up to one year in jail if convicted on charges, according to Lt. Chris Olivarez, a spokesperson with the Texas Department of Public Safety.:snip:
