EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande City agents seized more than 950 pounds of marijuana in two separate incidents. 

Sunday evening, Rio Grande City agents working near La Rosita, Texas, responded to a report of a vehicle involved in narcotics smuggling travelling north from the Rio Grande. Agents in the area located the vehicle and, shortly thereafter, the driver of the vehicle abruptly turned south and travelled towards the river. As agents approached the river, they observed the driver abandon the vehicle and swim to Mexico. Agents searched the vehicle and discovered 571 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $457K.

A short while later, Rio Grande City agents on patrol received information of a narcotic smuggling attempt near Garciasville, Texas. As agents responded, they observed an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) abruptly turn around and travel south towards the Rio Grande riverbank. Upon arrival, agents discovered the ATV abandoned carrying several bundles of marijuana. The marijuana weighed 387 pounds and is worth an estimated $310K. Agents searched for the ATV rider and additional narcotics to no avail.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and report suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.
