U. S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized nearly $3 million worth of fentanyl and methamphetamine in a one week stretch.

A total of seven seizures at the Calexico and Andrade ports of entry between August 20 and 27 netted nearly 715 pounds of methamphetamine and 112 pounds of fentanyl. Port Director of the Calexico ports of entry Roque Caza said, " Our officers found a significant number of narcotics within a short period of time, this demonstrates the fierce dedication our officers have to uphold CBP's mission in protecting our nation's borders and keeping our communities safe from these dangerous drugs". Total value of the drugs is $2.8 million.
