U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized roughly four million dollars worth of meth during three separate actions.

According to CBP, the first incident happened on Friday at the World Trade Bridge when officers referred a 2004 Freightliner tractor to secondary inspection.

The driver was hauling a flatbed trailer that was hauling a shipment of stone. When agents searched the vehicle, they found 83 containers that contained 210 pounds of meth. The narcotics had an estimated street value of nearly three million dollars.

The second incident happened on the same day when officers found close to 40 pounds of meth hidden inside a mini fridge. The narcotics had an estimated street value of just over half a million dollars.

The third incident happened on the next day when officers found 38 pounds of meth inside a pick up truck.

All three cases were turned over to Homeland Security.
