U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized more than $11 million worth of meth entering Texas, officials confirmed Tuesday.

During X-ray and K-9 inspections on Friday, officers intercepted the meth from a vehicle driving in Laredo, according to the Laredo Morning Times.

The meth weighed 570.79 pounds and was worth an estimated $11,415,85.

“These drugs will not reach Main Street USA due to the efforts of the officers in our cargo facilities,” Port Director Gregory Alvarez said in a news release on Tuesday.

“Significant enforcement actions like this one illustrate CBP’s ongoing offensive against criminal networks and their organizations,” Alvarez added.
