DALLAS – 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. “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.
