PRESIDIO, TX (KWES) -

U.S. Border Agents made a large drug bust at the Presidio cargo facility last Friday. 

On Friday afternoon, authorities said they stopped a commercial shipment of clay tile on a flatbed trailor driven by a Mexican male citizen, as he made entry at the Presidio cargo facility.

Patrol agents said the shipment was described as 16 pallets of Saltillo clay tile.

According to Patrol authorities, an intense inspection of the shipment was performed, and a canine sweep of the shipment resulted in a positive alert for illegal goods.

Authorities said once the pallets were loaded off onto the dock, officers discovered boxes containing narcotics.

We’re told officers discovered single drug bundles on 128 of the boxes included in the shipment.

Agents said the shipment of tile, tractor and flatbed were seized.

We’re told no arrests were made and the investigation continues.
