It was early Friday evening when a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer approached the downtown Paso Del Norte international crossing from Mexico. A CBP officer became suspicious when the driver of the vehicle acted nervous during a preliminary inspection of the vehicle. During the secondary inspection, Shadow the dog alerted the officer to the dashboard of the vehicle. Upon further search, CBP officers discovered a stash of anabolic steroids concealed at the dashboard compartment.

“The CBP mission is anti-terror but the drug smuggling threat remains high as demonstrated by the recent seizure activity,” said Patricia Aveitia, CBP acting Port Director of the El Paso Port of Entry. “Traffic at area ports is very heavy however CBP officers remain focused on keeping bad things and bad people from entering the U.S.”

In a period of eight days, the CBP at this entry point has made three drug busts, including the one involving the Chevy Trailblazer. Other two drivers were nabbed attempting to smuggle large amounts of marijuana.
