According to a news release, the bust occurred at the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge when a 2016 Stoughton trailer manifesting a shipment of baby wipes was referred for a secondary inspection.

Investigators found 1,935 packages containing nearly 1,533 pounds of suspected cocaine concealed within the shipment.

“This seizure is a prime example of border security management and how it helps prevent dangerous narcotics from reaching our communities,” Port Director Alberto Flores with the Laredo Port of Entry stated.

The agency seized the narcotics, and special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigation are investigating.
