U S Customs Seizes Liquid Meth Valued at Nearly $300K at DFW Airport

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport seized over 65 pounds of liquid methamphetamine with an estimated value of $297,000, Jan. 2.

The narcotic was shipped from China to Memphis, Tenn. and destined for Fort Worth, Texas.

“Intercepting illegal drugs from entering our country is a top priority for CBP,” said Dallas Area Port Director Cleatus P. Hunt, Jr. “CBP officers targeted and seized a large amount of dangerous narcotics, preventing those drugs from ending up in the hands of our community.”

Two boxes of unlabeled bottles were shipped and manifested as “printing ink” with a declared value of $90. However, when CBP officers at DFW reviewed the electronic manifest, they determined a further inspection was warranted.

When the 100 bottles arrived to DFW, a CBP canine inspection indicated a presence of narcotics. Officers tested the clear, liquid substance found in the bottles and the test revealed the substance was positive for the properties of methamphetamine.

CBP officers seized the suspected narcotics. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents are investigating this matter.

CBP has seen a steady increase in methamphetamine seizures. In FY 2012, at ports of entry, CBP officers seized 14,131 pounds of this narcotic. CBP officers saw a 212 percent increase over a five year period when they seized 44,065 pounds in FY 2017.
