Mexican Army Seizes Drug Load Valued at 16 million USD

Soldiers from the Mexican Army seized a massive load of a variety of drugs in the La Rumorosa area in Tecate.

The illicit drugs were found in an inhabited area about 6 miles south from the La Rumorosa town.

The army reported that 1 ton of crystal meth was found, along with 6 kilos of powdered fentanyl and 5,000 pills of that same drug. About 5.3 kilos of heroin and 4 gallons of marihuana (THC) oil were also found.

The army stated that the bust would considerably affect the financial structure of local crime organizations since the total street value of the drugs was about 16 million USD.

The drugs were found abandoned on a dirt road when the military was doing a surveillance drive through the area. No arrests were made in connection with the drugs.
