Del Rio Sector Agents Seize Narcotics

Release Date

DEL RIO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Del Rio Sector’s Del Rio Station seized narcotics from an abandoned backpack, Feb. 1.

At approximately 1 a.m., agents responded to an alert to possible illegal activity near Guyler Lane. Upon arrival, agents encountered three individuals, one of whom dropped a backpack and attempted to abscond into the nearby brush. All individuals were arrested and identified as undocumented migrants illegally present in the United States. A subsequent search of the backpack revealed 5.8 pounds of methamphetamine and .44 pounds of fentanyl.

The case has been turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration for further investigation.

To report suspicious activity, call the Del Rio Sector’s toll-free number at 1-866-511-8727.
