PORT ANGELES, Wash. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection, United States Border Patrol agents assigned to the Port Angeles Station seized a significant amount of methamphetamine west of the city of Port Angeles during a joint-interagency effort.
On April 11, after receiving information that suspicious bags were observed near the beach, a Border Patrol agent arrived and deployed his K-9 partner. The Border Patrol K-9 led the agent to multiple bags and alerted to the presence of narcotics. The bags contained 342 pounds of methamphetamine worth nearly $1.7 million. Agents seized the contraband and further coordinated with all partner entities to include the U.S. Coast Guard, Homeland Security Investigations, the Olympic Peninsula Narcotics Enforcement Team, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, CBP’s Air and Marine Operations, Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
“This seizure highlights the great work the United States Border Patrol conducts with its U.S. and Canadian law enforcement partners,” said Chief Patrol Agent David S. BeMiller. “Transnational criminal organizations capitalizing on this vulnerable area by smuggling narcotics are a danger to the community. By focusing on border security, we are enhancing national security.”
