61 Kilograms of THC Extract Seized in Pembina

61 Kilograms of THC Extract Seized in Pembina

shipment was sent to the United States on an express consignment carrier

PEMBINA, NORTH DAKOTA  ~~~~~~  March 26, 2012  (LSN) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations officers at the Pembina Port of Entry seized a shipment of THC extract totaling 61 kilograms on March 18.

The shipment was sent to the United States on an express consignment carrier and was manifested as non-alcohol disinfectant.

Physical examination of the shipment revealed eight containers of a brown, liquid substance.

Assistance from U.S. Border Patrol K-9 unit resulted in the alert for the presence of a trained odor.  The odor was traced back to the shipment labeled disinfectant.  Samples of the substance were sent to a CBP laboratory for analysis. The analysis determined the product was THC extract.

“CBP officers and Border Patrol agents work to safeguard the United States,” said Pembina Area Port Director Jason Schmelz.  “This seizure represents the successful partnership of these agencies to prevent contraband from entering the United States and into our communities.”

"I’m proud that the dedicated men and women of CBP were able to keep this contraband out of our neighborhoods,” said Grand Forks Sector’s Chief Patrol Agent Anthony S. Good. “I’m pleased that we had a K-9 Agent available to assist our colleagues at the Port of Entry.

CBP's border security mission is led at ports of entry by CBP officers from the Office of Field Operations.  Please visit CBP Ports of Entry to learn more about how CBP’s Office of Field Operations secures our nation’s borders. Learn more about CBP at www.CBP.gov.
