Broccoli shipment hides $18 million in drugs at Texas-Mexico border

US officials report that a shipment of broccoli stopped at the US-Mexico border in Texas also had over $18 million in meth and a variety of other drugs (cocaine, heroin and marijuana). US Customs and Border Protection agents stopped a truck that was purportedly transporting commercial produce at the Pharr International Bridge cargo facility Sunday in south Texas, according to a news release.

Border agents scanned the truck, revealing over 400 packages of drugs packed inside, officials said. Among the “mother lode” was $18.4 million in meth weighing nearly 900 pounds, officials said.
