U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say they have seized a significant amount of liquid methamphetamine.

Agents say the seizure happened Sunday, July 29, at the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge.

CBP officers noticed a 2001 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck and requested the vehicle to receive a second inspection. Agents say a non-intrusive imaging system and canine inspection lead to the discovery of 104 pounds of alleged liquid methamphetamine hidden within the truck.

Acting Port Director Eugene Crawford, stationed at the Laredo Port of Entry, says, “Our CBP officers knowledge of concealment methods and the technology they utilize on a daily basis played a key role in the discovery of these hard narcotics.”

The narcotics have an estimated street value of $1,453,713.
