LA GRULLA, Texas – Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station (RGC) agents interdicted two drug smuggling attempts resulting in the seizure of nearly 250 pounds of marijuana.

Saturday, June 5, 2021, RGC agents working in La Grulla, Texas, observed several subjects carrying bundles of possible narcotics across the Rio Grande.  Agents immediately responded to the location, and a search of the area led to the apprehension of eight subjects and the seizure of four large bundles of marijuana.  The total weight of the marijuana was 114 pounds worth an estimated $91K.  The drugs and subjects were transported to a Border Patrol station for processing. 

Early this morning, RGC agents working in La Grulla, Texas, saw a similar incident as the day before. Agents observed multiple subjects near the Rio Grande with bundles of narcotics.  Upon detection, the drug smugglers dropped their contraband and swiftly absconded into Mexico.

The total weight of the marijuana was approximately 135 pounds, valued at over $108K.  The seized marijuana was transported to a Border Patrol station for processing.
