Border officers continue their crackdown on drug smuggling at border crossings.
Another million dollar load of cocaine is now off the streets as Customs and Border Protection officers at the Brownsville/Matamoros bridge found the 30 pounds of the drug concealed within the floor of a Dodge caravan on Wednesday.
A 24 year-old Mexican citizen and resident of Matamoros is under arrest and will face federal drug charges.
