Border Patrol Agents Make Massive Meth Bust
Border Patrol agents have announced a massive haul of illegal drugs following a series of busts at the southern border.

According to Fox News:

A series of drug busts by Border Patrol agents over the last week led to roughly $4.8 million in meth being seized, officials said Monday.

The drugs were apprehended at Falfurrias checkpoint in Texas following the disruption of “three separate methamphetamine smuggling attempts,” Customs and Border Protection said in a news release.

The first occurred on Thursday when checkpoint agents located six meth bundles – with an estimated price tag of $1.8 million – that were allegedly hidden within a man’s vehicle, CBP said.

The man, who is a U.S. citizen, was arrested, the agency said.

  The agency is touting that these busts are keeping drugs out of our communities and helping to keep America and her citizens safe.
