LAREDO, Texas – A 27-year old resident of Norcross, Georgia, has entered a guilty plea for conspiracy and importation of nearly 40 kilograms of methamphetamine, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

 

On June 6, 2019, Vanessa Urzua attempted entry into the United States at the Lincoln Juarez Bridge #2 in Laredo driving a Ford Explorer. During a secondary inspection, authorities conducted an x-ray examination and soon discovered anomalies in all four tires of the vehicle.

 

Further inspection of the tires revealed non-factory compartments in the tires containing a crystalline substance, which field-tested positive for methamphetamine with a total weight of 39.2 kilograms.

 

U.S. District Judge Diana Saldaña will impose sentencing at a later date. At that time, Urzua faces up to life in prison and a possible $10,000,000 maximum fine.

 

She has been and will remain in custody pending that hearing.

 

Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation with the assistance of Customs and Border Protection. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon Scott Bowling is prosecuting the case.
