(Cincinnati, Oh.) —  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in Cincinnati seized 11 pounds of methamphetamine from two shipments from Mexico last month. 

On July 24, Cincinnati officers searched packages labeled as "candles and crafts" and "melamine dishes and Mexican crafts." Both shipments had inconsistencies. When the packages were searched, officers found white substance that tested positive for methamphetamine. 

The first shipment was being imported from San Luis Potosi, Mexico to an individual in Dallas, Texas. The second package came from Mexico City, Mexico, en route to a private residence in Rhodes, Australia.

“During this time of uncertainty and change our officers continue to secure and protect our nation by preventing drugs like these from reaching innocent civilians,” said CBP Cincinnati Port Director Richard Gillespie. “Our focus remains the same as we guard our borders and work with transnational partners to root out organized crime.”
