$11 Million Worth Of Cocaine Found In Baby Wipes Inside Shipment
What Happens When The Border Is Open
Texas has been complaining all year that their borders being open would attract drug smugglers. Well it looks like the boys down in the Lone Star State may have been on to something as they have just made the biggest drug bust in 20 years.
According to reports from Fox News This all went down last Friday at the Columbia-Solidarity Bridge when a trailer got flagged for a second inspection. The manifest said it was delivering baby wipes but a drug sniffing dog found 1935 packages of cocaine.
That's 1,532.65 pounds of cocaine had an estimated street value of $11,818,400. Reports say CBP officers seized the cocaine, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations special agents are investigating the seizure, the release said.
With how fentanyl overdoses in America have been on the rise its safe to say this bust saved many lives.
