HIDALGO, TX (KXXV) -

Over $2 million worth of cocaine and meth was seized by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Office of Field Operations in the past week.

The drugs were seized in two unrelated arrests.

“These two significant interceptions of hard narcotics at two of our border crossings are indicative of the resiliency of our officers and their tireless efforts to prevent harmful drugs from entering our country,” said Port Director Efrain Solis Jr. at Hidalgo/Pharr/Anzalduas Port of Entry.

The first arrest was made on Saturday when a woman and her daughter turned in to the Hidalgo/Reynosa International Bridge, and officers discovered nearly 60 pounds of cocaine hidden in the SUV.

The next day, another arrest was made at the Anzalduas International Bridge. A 42-year-old man attempted to cross the border with 95 pounds of meth.

CBP OFO seized all the narcotics and the vehicles involved. The three U.S. citizen travelers were released to the custody of Homeland Security Investigations.
