    Border Patrol Helps Mexican Authorities Raid Huge Marijuana Grow Just Over Border

    A special Border Patrol unit assisted Mexican authorities earlier this week in raiding a huge marijuana grow site just south of the border from eastern San Diego County.


    U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Friday the raid on the
    13 square-mile site, which supported over 42,000 plants with a street value of $277 million.

    On June 6, Mexican Polica Federal personnel located the site with assistance from U.S. intelligence resources, but were unable to access it due to inadequate roads and insufficient equipment.


    Then on June 11, using 4×4 trucks and all-terrain vehicles provided by the United States, the Mexicans returned and successfully raided the giant marijuana farm.


    “This significant drug seizure is an excellent example of the effective collaboration among law enforcement agencies in the United States and Mexico,” the CBP said in a statement.


    The training and equipment were provided through the Border Patrol’s Bi-National Border Operations Academy program, which helps train personnel from both countries in new tactics and strategies, including intelligence gathering, situational awareness, target enforcement operations, building entry, land navigation, and first aid.

    Mexico torches 13-square-mile marijuana grow site near US border, $277M worth of drugs destroyed

    EAGLE PASS, Texas — Mexican federal police this week discovered and torched a massive marijuana grow site in the country's northern border city of Tijuana that American authorities say contained $277 million of drugs that likely would have been smuggled over the border and into the U.S.

    The grow site was located six miles south of the international border in La Rumorosa, Baja California, and halfway between San Diego, Calif., on the west side of the state and El Centro, located on the east side.

    The land contained more than 42,000 pot bushes planted across 13 square miles, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.


    The 70,000 pounds of marijuana had a U.S. street value of $276.9 million and was burned at the site Tuesday following a binational investigation into the illegal operation that started last week.

    Border Patrol officials out of San Diego, Calif., said the bust was a result of training and equipment U.S. officials recently gave Mexican federal police.


    Between April and May, agents from the San Diego and El Centro regions, as well as other unspecified federal officials, held a binational academy for Mexican officials, where they shared new strategies for how to gather intelligence, navigate unmapped areas of land, best practices for building entry, and other skills.


    CBP said Mexican officials used intelligence-gathering skills they learned this spring to uncover the suspicious operation in a rural area south of Tijuana. Mexican officials first discovered part of the grow site on June 6, but were unable to determine how big it was or get to it due to a lack of roads into the area.


    Mexican officials used Global Positioning System devices they got as part of the U.S. training to gather geographical information on the site so they could return with larger forces.


    They returned Tuesday this week with all-terrain vehicles and trucks, and torched the site.


    "This undoubtedly fosters a safer and more secure border environment that advances our goal to dismantle and defeat the transnational criminal organizations that threaten the safety of our country," CBP said in a statement issued late Friday.
