United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Otay Mesa port of entry’s cargo facility successfully intercepted a major drug smuggling attempt. Nearly 900,000 fentanyl pills, with an estimated street value of $2.5 million, were discovered hidden inside two porcelain sinks. The vigilance and expertise of CBP officers, along with the help of detection dogs, led to the identification of the drugs. Fentanyl, a deadly synthetic opioid, has been responsible for a rise in overdose deaths across the United States. CBP officials praised their officers’ dedication in preventing the distribution of these dangerous drugs. The seizure of over 189 pounds of fentanyl is a significant victory in the fight against drug trafficking. This interception underscores the ongoing efforts of CBP to safeguard the public from harm and disrupt the operations of drug smugglers.
