During the inspection, the CBP said officers
discovered several plastic wrapped packages,
"which, when probed, tested positive to the prop-
erties of cocaine." The contraband weighed about
nine pounds (4.2 kilos) with an estimated street
value of US$99,000.
"Smuggling organisations try to conceal their
loads by any means possible and use many venues
to avoid detection from law enforcement," stated
Marcelino Borges, CBP director of field operations
in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
"Our multi-agency law enforcement efforts are
effective in the goal of deterring these smuggling
attempts," he added.
Marcelino said these interdictions are part of
a multi-agency law enforcement effort in support
of the Caribbean Border Interagency Group s
Operation Caribbean Guard.
