CBP at LAX Intercepts Meth Chemicals Destined To Mexico

Thursday, September 01, 2011


Los Angeles — U.S. Customs and Border Protection unprecedented efforts to disrupt Mexican drug trafficking organizations do not just occur at the land border but at airports and seaports nationwide.

CBP officers at an air cargo consignment facility of Los Angeles International Airport seized eight drums, 520 pounds of methylamine hydrochloride, a known chemical that is used as a precursor to methamphetamine and ecstasy. This amount of methylamine can theoretically produce over 330 pounds of methamphetamine. The shipment arrived from China with a final destination in central Mexico.

CBP officers at an air cargo consignment facility of Los Angeles International Airport seized eight drums, 520 pounds of methylamine hydrochloride a known chemical that is used as a precursor to methamphetamine and ecstasy.

“This interception is a fine example of the behind the scenes hard work of CBP officers to keep dangerous narcotics, and precursor chemicals used to manufacturer these dangers drugs, from reaching the drug trafficking organizations,” said Todd C. Owen CBP Director of Field Operations in Los Angeles.

On August 12, CBP officers discovered and seized the shipment. Samples of the powder were sent to Laboratories and Scientific Services, CBP’s scientific arm. Chemists identified the chemical as methylamine hydrochloride.

Methylamine hydrochloride is a corrosive, flammable, strong odor chemical. In one pathway, it is essential to manufacture methamphetamine and ecstasy. Methylamine hydrochloride is a List 1 controlled substance by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration with many legitimate industrial applications in pesticides, solvents and pharmaceutical products.

Suppliers of these products are subject to regulations and control measures. The Controlled Substances Act establishes parameters and strict rules on the manufacture, importation, use and distribution of controlled substances.

On a typical day in fiscal year 2010, CBP seized 25,209 pounds of drugs nationwide.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

NOBODY is more vocal about that issue than me! NOBODY! I have been screaming about this for 20 years. For 20 years I have said that when the problems are as bad in the midwest as they are on the border states (AZ in my case) then you will hear people scream. Now 20 years later the problems are as bad in the midwest as they were in AZ 20 years ago. Multiply that x100 and that's what we have today in AZ.

But that has nothing to do with anything. You are absolutely fine with US law abiding citizens being treated like chit because you don't like illegals. Bet you'd change your tune if ANY US Govt official did the same to you. You'd be screaming like a girl.

You are merely looking for insults and nothing on a rational level. Personally, I don't give 2 chits how illegals are treated at the border. But I do care how old men such and the one shoved after putting in 30 years to border patrol are treated. I care about me who has never been convicted let alone even charged with anything. It said RIGHT ON THE LABEL local anesthetic - Lidocaine. I have no problem with him detaining me while he verified what that means. But there was no reason to treat a US citizen that way. He had my passport, it had already been run. No criminal record, wanted for nothing.

Swearing at US citizens, calling them names, and THEN finding out the citizen was in the right... no. That's not right. You can justify that any damn way you want but I damn sure won't sit back and take it anymore. Five years of their childishness is quite enough.

It matters not if I live in Mexico (And Phoenix, BTW), it doesn't matter if I live in frigg'en China. While I get that the entire concept is going over your head, all I can do is my best to explain to you that this is not aceptable behavior by US Customs and Border Protection or ANY govt official to do to a US citizen. FINE! Detain me, I have no problem with that. Identify the drug. Leave the BS out, at least until you know if I am breaking our laws or not.

You know what my job in life is? It's bringing back US dollars to the US. The dollars that US citizens spend on illegal drugs and the money that goes from the US to MX? At least I am doing my part to earn it BACK so those dollars are floating around the US instead of MX. I'm quite sure you have a problem with that as well. pfh...

What do YOU do to help bring back US dollars to the US from MX?

I would strongly encourage you to change your Av. It simply isn't accurate. In your world it's AmericanLAST merely because you hate the problem of illegal immigration. I think you have given up too much in the name of national security for your own good.

One can only hope next time isues like this happen with ANY US govt official, it happens to YOU.

El Paso CBP Seize Smuggled Currency

Thursday, September 01, 2011

El Paso, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the El Paso port of entry seized $130,000 on August 30. The money was discovered hidden in a vehicle that was leaving the U.S. at the Ysleta international crossing. click for hi-res
CBP officers at the El Paso port of entry discovered tape-wrapped bundles of currency hidden in the firewall area of a vehicle attempting to enter Mexico. A total of $130,000 was confiscated during an outbound operation at the Ysleta crossing on August 30, 2011.

CBP officers and Border Patrol agents were conducting a southbound inspection operation at the Ysleta crossing when a 1996 Pontiac Bonneville attempted to leave the U.S. CBP officers selected the vehicle for an intensive examination after speaking with the driver and receiving a negative declaration for currency, weapons or ammunition. A CBP currency detector canine searched the vehicle and alerted to the firewall area of the car. CBP officers and Border Patrol agents continued their exam and located eight tape-wrapped bundles in the firewall area of the vehicle. The packages were opened revealing $130,000 in U.S. currency.

“Currency seizures hit smugglers where it hurts them the most, their wallets,” said U.S. Customs and Border Protection El Paso Port Director Hector Mancha. “Big currency seizures like this make it harder for criminal organizations to function by reducing their operating capital. Seized money is not replaced easily.”

CBP officers took custody of the suspect, 38-year-old Luis Carlos Quezada Rodriguez of Chihuahau City, Chihuahua, Mexico. He was turned over to Homeland Security Investigations special agents and arrested on federal currency smuggling charges. He was booked into the El Paso county jail where he is being held without bond.

The CBP focus on outbound inspections has significantly increased the cost of doing business for violent criminal organizations and will continue to serve as a valuable tool in our efforts to conduct effective border operations. In March 2009, CBP increased its use of “pulse and surge” strategies for outbound operations on the southwest border. As of July 31, CBP has seized more than $40 million in cash exiting the U.S. this fiscal year.

While anti-terrorism is the primary mission of CBP, the inspection process at the ports of entry associated with this mission results in impressive numbers of enforcement actions in all categories.

cbp seize more than 400 pounds of marijuana at southern new mexico port

thursday, september 01, 2011


columbus, n.m. – u.s. Customs and border protection officers working at the columbus port of entry made a 426-pound marijuana seizure monday. A canadian man was arrested in connection with the failed smuggling attempt.




the seizure was made just before 1:00 p.m., august 29th when a 1999 dodge ram towing a gooseneck trailer entered the port from mexico. Cbp officers working at the primary inspection booth selected the vehicle for a secondary inspection. Cbp drug sniffing dog “domi” searched the vehicle and alerted to the presence of drugs in the trailer. Cbp officers searched the trailer and located a green leafy substance which tested positive for marijuana after probing the i-beams of the trailer. Cbp officers removed 64 bundles of marijuana from the metal beams. The drugs weighed 426 pounds.



Cbp officers took custody of the suspect, 55-year-old bengamin wienes wolf of kingsville, ontario, canada. He was turned over to homeland security investigations special agents to face federal charges including importation of a controlled substance and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.







“this is the second large marijuana seizure cbp officers at the columbus port have made in recent days,” said columbus port director robert reza. “cbp officers here made a 157-pound bust on august 20th. A significant amount of marijuana has not made it to the intended destination because of the vigilance of the cbp workforce.”



in addition to the 426-pound drug bust, cbp officers working at el paso area border crossings have seized 1,440 pounds of marijuana in 13-separate seizures since last friday.

CBP Officers In South Texas Seize $881,000 In Counterfeit DVD Players

(Monday, August 29, 2011)



contacts for this news release

Laredo, Texas – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers from Laredo Port of Entry on August 24th seized a shipment of DVD players valued at $881,000 that infringed on two trademarks recorded with CBP.

CBP officers assigned to the World Trade Bridge Export Lot targeted a shipment containing DVD players bound for export for an enforcement examination. During the examination, CBP officers discovered that the DVD players contained the DVD and Dolby Digital brand names, which are trademark recorded with CBP.

CBP officers working with import specialists from the Laredo Import Specialist Enforcement Team (ISET) detained the shipments pending verification of the trademark. The ISET determined that the trademark on the DVD players were counterfeit. In addition, the importer was unable to produce letters of authorization for the use of the DVD and Dolby Digital trademarks. CBP seized the merchandise.

The merchandise seized included a combined total of 1,160 packages containing 5,800 DVD players. The estimated domestic value of the DVD players is about $113,000 and the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, if the trademark had been genuine, would have been $881,000.

“Our CBP officers and ISET team maintained their vigilance, and their tenacity and attention to detail resulted in the discovery of a shipment allegedly infringing on two trademarks recorded with CBP,” said Sidney Aki, CBP port director, Laredo. “Enforcing intellectual property rights law helps protect the American consumer and helps restore American economic competitiveness and ensure a level playing field for legitimate trademark holders.”
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation's borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.

CBP Seizes Cocaine, Heroin And Currency In Mayaguez And San Juan Port Inspections
190 Kilos Of Cocaine, 2.06 Kilos Of Heroin And 196,625 In US Dollars Seized In Four Different Events

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

San Juan, P.R. – In four different incidents this weekend, U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized 190.476 kilos (419.93 pounds) of cocaine and 4.54 kilos of heroin (10.14 pounds).

In San Juan, during the inspection of the vessel M/V Sydney Express arriving from Caucedo, Dominican Republic, CBP officers referred a ship’s container for secondary inspection after noticing a discrepancy in the arrival manifest and a container seal.

Upon opening the container for examination, four large duffel bags were found next to the door, containing 125 packages of suspected narcotics. A field test proved positive for cocaine. The seized cocaine weighed 135.2 kilos (298.12 pounds), with an estimated value of $3,380,000. Shipment of the container originated in Spain and it was trans-shipped through Caucedo.

Later in the afternoon another container was examined and upon inspection two duffle bags were found containing 49 packages of suspected narcotics. Field testing revealed two of the packages contained heroin and the remaining 47 tested positive for cocaine. A total of 51.15 kilos of cocaine (112.77 pounds) and 2.06 kilos of heroin (4.54 pounds) were seized, with an estimated value of $1,074,150 for the cocaine and $164,800 for the heroin.

In Mayaguez, during the inspection of the ferry M/V Caribbean Fantasy arriving from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, a CBP Border Patrol K-9 alerted positive to the odor of narcotics on an arriving Chevy Pickup truck.

In secondary inspection CBP officers removed a bolt from the truck's differential and noticed a white powdery substance, which field tested positive to cocaine.

Inside the differential CBP officers found four packs of suspected narcotics, which later field tested positive to cocaine. The four packs weighed 4.126 kilos (9.10 pounds) with an estimated value of $103,150.

The driver and owner of the truck, Maximo De La Rosa, 53, a citizen of the Dominican Republic and legal permanent resident of the U.S., was arrested. The U.S. Attorney's office accepted to prosecute the case.

Later in the day during an outbound currency inspection of two ferry passengers traveling together, the female declared that she was traveling with $300 and the male declared to be traveling with $3,700. Upon inspection of their individual luggage, bundles of U.S. dollars were found. The male passenger had $91,746, and the female had $104,897 and totaled $196,625.

The custody of all the seized narcotics, currency and the arrested individual was transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations for further investigation.
