Port of Buffalo Continues Marijuana Seizure Success

Port of Buffalo Continues Marijuana Seizure Success

BUFFALO, NEW YORK  ~~~~~~~   March 29, 2021  (LSN)  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Peace Bridge Cargo Facility seized another 1,227 lbs. of marijuana in a commercial shipment.

On March 26, CBP officers assigned to the Port of Buffalo at the Peace Bridge selected a commercial shipment that was manifested as “paper towels and dishwasher detergent” for additional examination.

The truck and trailer were sent for a non-intrusive examination that revealed anomalies inside the trailer. A CBP canine search produced an alert on the pallets inside and a subsequent physical inspection revealed multiple vacuum-sealed packages contained within the pallets. The contents of the vacuum-sealed packages field-tested positive for the properties of marijuana and have an estimated street value of more than $2.4 million dollars.

“Nefarious actors go to great lengths to smuggle illegal contraband into the United States,” said Acting Buffalo Port Director Gaetano Cordone. “The dedicated and hardworking staff at the Port of Buffalo continue to successfully use their training and expertise to protect our great Nation."

The Buffalo Field Office, which covers 16 ports of entry throughout New York State, continues to add to their drug seizure totals since travel restrictions were implemented one year ago.
