    This is a drug bust

    I travel thru the Falfurrias checkpoint at least twice a month,and they always have vehicles they are running cameras into the gas tank and deflating tires on.In other parts of the country if the cops find a kilo of coke they are ecstatic,these types of loads are fairly common down here with most in the 300 to 400 pound range,anything under 100 pounds doesn't even make the papers.
    PHARR ó U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered 330 bundles of cocaine Friday hidden in a tractor-trailer, Pharr police said.

    Agents encountered the tractor-trailer, registered to the company FX Express, at Border Patrolís Falfurrias checkpoint and transferred it to the Pharr port of entry for further inspection.

    There, agents put the trailer through an x-ray scan and searched it, revealing about 872 pounds of cocaine hidden within a compartment.

    The Pharr Police Department has taken over the investigation and is working with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in questioning the drivers. State criminal charges are pending, police said.

    Sad part is how much gets through hits the street.

    Just think of how much gets by every day.

    Everything I have been taught is that the big dealers expect to lose 1/4 of their shipments. Everything I have seen makes it look like much less than 25% of shipments is discovered.

    They have stash houses down here where drugs they get across the border are kept until they try to transport farther north.I've seen hundreds of kilos confiscated,They have even busted a few cops for providing security and transportation of loads of dope.Like others have said a huge amount still get through
