EDINBURG, TX – Agents from the Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station seized nearly 400 pounds of marijuana in Starr County Tuesday.

Rio Grande City Border Patrol (RGC) agents responded to suspected criminal activity near Garciaville, TX Tuesday afternoon.  As agents arrived, they observed an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) departing the area.  Agents attempted to make contact with the ATV operator, however the subject quickly abandoned the ATV and absconded into Mexico.

Hours later, RGC agents working near La Grulla, Texas, observed multiple subjects attempting to load bundles of suspected narcotics into a vehicle.  As agents responded to the area, the subjects abandoned the narcotics and fled back to Mexico.  Agents were able to apprehend one suspect and five bundles of marijuana weighing more than 276 pounds and valued at over $221K.  The suspect and marijuana were turned over to the Starr County HIDTA Task Force.
