    700K Worth of Drugs Kept Off the Streets in the Rio Grande Valley

    700K Worth of Drugs Kept Off the Streets in the Rio Grande Valley


    Release Date: May 27, 2020



    EDINBURG, Texas – Border Patrol agents working in Starr County foil two drug smuggling attempts, yielding nearly 900 pounds of marijuana seized.

    Yesterday morning, Rio Grande Valley Sector agents working near Escobares, Texas, responded to a reported drug smuggling attempt involving a maroon GMC Terrain. Agents observed the vehicle travel north at a high rate of speed and attempted to conduct a vehicle stop, but the driver failed to yield. Officers with Roma Police Department, who were assisting, advised the agents they were in pursuit of the GMC Terrain that eluded agents.

    Moments later, the driver stopped and abandoned the vehicle. Agents searched the immediate area and discovered a man attempting to hide in the nearby brush. A search of the vehicle produced more than 186 pounds of marijuana worth $149K.

    That same day, Rio Grande City agents observed several drug smugglers walking north of the Rio Grande with large bundles on their backs. When the agents attempted to arrest them, the smugglers abandoned the marijuana and fled towards the river, successfully swimming back to Mexico.

    Agents requested the assistance of a Border Patrol K-9 team and, after a thorough search of the brush, agents recovered 689 pounds of marijuana. The drugs are worth over $551K.

    A secondary search of the area led to the arrest of three Mexican nationals who were attempting to hide in the brush. The Starr County High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force took custody of the subjects and drugs.

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

    Even with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, human smugglers continue to try these brazen attempts with zero regard for the lives they endanger nor to the health of the citizens of our great nation. The U.S. Border Patrol agents of the Rio Grande Valley Sector will continue to safeguard the nation and community against these criminal elements.

    Get our military TANKS down there to clear the brush for our Border Patrol and put large boulders along the River.
