U.S. Customs and Border Protection stopped close to $790,000 dollars worth of cocaine from hitting Valley streets.
Officers working at the Hidalgo/Reynosa International bridge discovered 25 pounds of cocaine hidden inside the fire wall area of a late model Jetta. The car was refereed to a secondary inspection from a non-intrusive image scan after a K-9 team alerted officers to the presence of narcotics. The driver, Etdil Flores, a 21 year-old from Memphis, was arrested on federal drug charges.
