Drug Smuggler Used Tamales to Bring Fentanyl Across the Border

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intercepted a load of fentanyl pills disguised inside tamales at the Arizona-Mexico border, the Nogales port director Michael W. Humphries said on Twitter Thursday.

The Wednesday seizure included around 2,100 fentanyl pills hidden inside the tamales that were inside a cooler, according to Humphries’ tweet. CBP officers seized over 12,000 pounds of fentanyl at the southern border between October 2021 and August 2022, according to agency statistics.

“Excellent work by officers and K9 teams maintaining a high level of vigilance,” Humphries wrote in the tweet of the recent confiscation.
