    U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials seized more than $1 million worth of drugs from two buses in two separate incidents.Officials said the two buses were loaded with cocaine and methampethamine worth $1.4 million and were attempting to cross into the United States via the Lincoln-Juarez bridge.

    Though the incidents are separate, officials said the two could be related.
    CBP spokesman Rick Pauza said 28.4 pounds of methamphetamine, valued at $400,000, were recovered from inside the four batteries of a 1995 Dina Viaggio bus.
    Several hours later, 31 pounds of cocaine, valued at one million, were recovered from inside the four batteries of a 1998 Dina Viaggio bus.
    Both seizures occurred Thursday, during the early morning hours at the Lincoln-Juarez Bridge, Pauza said.
    Gene Garza, CBP Port Director in Laredo commemorated CBP’s efforts.
    In a written statement released Friday he congratulated his officers for a job well done.
    “Our frontline CBP Officers stayed sharp and used an effective combination of experience and technology to take down these two significant loads of hard narcotics,” Garza said.
    The contraband in both cases was wrapped in the same brown paper and with plastic cellophane.
    Twelve bundles of each load were found; in both separate cases, four bundles of each were found inside each of the four batteries. Though this evidence leads authorities to believe the two loads came from the same source, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agents are investigating both cases separately; as of Friday evening, no arrests had been made in either investigation.

    At least no one got arrested. But I bet someone is going to get shot over this.
