On Thursday night near La Joya, agents working near the Rio Grande saw several people loading bundles into a minivan near the river’s edge. The smugglers hopped into a motorized boat and crossed the river to Mexico. Agents found nearly 680 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $540,000 in the van.
In another seizure that day in Havana, agents found a bag of homemade spikes and a bundle of marijuana after following a trail of footprints. Two people were apprehended and nearly 350 pounds of marijuana worth more than $275,000 was seized.
Additional seizures in the agency’s Rio Grande Valley sector pushed the total marijuana seized to more than 6,000 pounds.
