U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported seizing more than $3.6 million in drugs just last weekend alone.

On Monday, Oct. 5, CBP published 13 press releases on its website. Ten of the news releases involved drug busts, including nine separate incidents that happened over the weekend.

In total, the monetary value of the drugs CBP reported finding last weekend added up to $3,629,730, all seized along the Southwest U.S. border with Mexico. More than $1.8 million in cocaine was seized, along with about $1.1 million in weed and $670,000 in narcotics – and those are just the busts they’re advertising online.

“On a typical day in Fiscal Year 2014, CBP seized over 10,000 pounds of drugs,” CBP noted in one of the press releases. The agency added that more than $11.8 million in narcotics has been seized along one sector of the border alone in Fiscal Year 2015.

If that’s what CBP has caught, it’s hard to imagine what must get through.
