EL PASO, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Ysleta Port of Entry seized 12.08 pounds of methamphetamine and 1,875 rounds of ammunition in two separate failed smuggling attempts.

“Stopping the flow of drugs from entering the U.S. and weapons and ammunition from leaving are two important parts of CBP’s overall enforcement mission,” said CBP Ysleta Port Director Arnoldo Gomez. “Our officers remain committed to performing their duties to protect the members of our community.”

On Sept. 15, CBP officers encountered a 39-year-old female U.S. citizen who arrived from Mexico via the vehicle lanes. The individual was referred for a secondary inspection of the vehicle which included screening by a CBP canine and non-intrusive exam. A thorough search resulted in the discovery of 12.08 pounds of methamphetamine concealed within the seats of the vehicle. On Sept. 19, CBP officers conducting outbound enforcement operations selected a vehicle driven by a 35-year-old male, Mexican citizen, for a routine inspection. During inspection of the vehicle, CBP officers located a bag within the engine area containing 1,875 rounds of ammunition in a variety of calibers.
