HOUSTON – U.S. Customs and Border Protection, also known simply as CBP, is charged with securing our nation’s borders and facilitating lawful international travel and trade.

In that effort, the agency shares on social media some of its most notable finds in its efforts to stop illegal actions across the U.S.

Here are some of the more notable finds from 2022. Think bird carcasses encased in cement, pumpkins stuffed with liquid meth and cocaine called baby wipes and a single Egyptian artifact. (These tweets were captured from the CBP Twitter page that archives its tweets and retweets back to only June 17, 2022.)
