Agents inspecting a truck at a South Texas border entry point have seized more than $2 million worth of cocaine wrapped in about 100 packages.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials on Wednesday announced the drug bust at the World Trade Bridge in Laredo.
An agency statement says the driver of the stake bed truck was arrested when the cocaine was discovered Monday. A drug-sniffing dog helped locate the 260 pounds of cocaine.
A CBP statement did not say where the packages of cocaine were hidden in the rig, which also was confiscated.
“I congratulate our officers for this significant seizure and for the outstanding job they do each day in keeping our borders safe,” said Port Director Albert Flores, Laredo Port of Entry.
