PHARR, Texas — The U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized almost $2 million in alleged methamphetamine over the weekend, the department said.

The drugs — which are valued at $1,763,680 — were discovered Oct. 27 at the Pharr International Bridge cargo facility, investigators said. The product was found in a black 1995 Freightliner that was supposed to be carrying a commercial shipment of carrots, the department reported.

The alleged narcotics were individually packaged in 159 containers and weighed about 88 pounds, officers said.

The case remains under investigation by Homeland Security Investigations special agents.

No reports of anyone being arrested in connection to the drugs.
