A 'Record Setting' $11.8 million worth of cocaine disguised as baby wipes is found by the Texas Border Patrol

Last Monday, officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Office of Field Operations discovered a "colossal" quantity of cocaine valued close to $12 million.

According to a CBP press statement released on Monday, the narcotics were discovered inside a 2016 Stoughton trailer at the Colombia-Solidarity Bridge last Friday.

The bridge connects Texas with the Mexican state of Nuevo Laredo and is situated in the city of Laredo.

When the trailer, which was allegedly transporting baby wipes, was sent for a second examination, authorities discovered the drugs.

 Officers discovered 1,532.65 pounds of cocaine in 1,935 packets during the "canine and non-intrusive" search.

The narcotics were packed to resemble wipes and had an estimated street value of $11,818,400, according to the press statement.
