Border Patrol's HUGE Independence Day Bust
Border Patrol agents over the Fourth of July weekend seized $5.2 million worth of narcotics and captured 13 fugitives along the California border with Mexico.

More than 300 pounds of methamphetamine, 223 pounds of cocaine, 45 pounds of heroine and other narcotics were seized by Border Patrol agents from Friday through Sunday, according to a press release issued Monday night by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The agents also arrested 13 fugitives during the same time period for various charges, including driving under the influence, assault, burglary and probation violation.

Some of the incidents included a Border Patrol agent who encountered a 23-year-old Mexican citizen driving a tractor trailer carrying Persian limes at the Otay Mesa Cargo port of entry on Sunday.
