Border Patrol agents seized more than $600,000 worth of liquid methamphetamine in Eagle Pass, Texas, while conducting checkpoint operations.

San Angelo Live reports that canines alerted agents to possible narcotics in the vehicle.

“The profit from these narcotics are more important to the criminal organizations than the negative impact they have on communities,” said Acting Del Rio Sector Chief Matthew Hudak. “I commend our agents for their hard work and dedication in removing these drugs from our streets.”

The liquid meth was found in shampoo bottles.

The driver was arrested and turned over to the DEA.

Fentanyl, the painkiller that killed Prince and is responsible for hundreds of over deaths in recent years, also poses a significant danger to law enforcement, the DEA warned.

The DEA unveiled a new public service announcement that warns officers of the dangers of fentanyl if they encounter it, The Washington Times reports. 

The video features two New Jersey police officers who accidentally inhaled fentanyl while trying to seal a plastic bag.

“A bunch of it poofed up into the air, right in our face, and we ended up inhaling it,” said one of the detectives.

“I felt like my body was shutting down,” said the other detective, describing effects of the drug that made him feel like he was dying.

The DEA reports that more than 700 people have died due to fentanyl use between 2013 and 2014.

Homeland Security officials have been caught drinking, using drugs and soliciting prostitutes while working outside of the country.

Now the inspector general wants Homeland Security to adopt specific policies to prevent such behavior while abroad, the Federal Times reports. 

The inspector general examined the departments policies for the 1,5000 employees who work outside the country and discovered very few guidelines for off-duty behavior.

“To minimize the risk of misconduct and its potential negative effect on the Department’s ability to accomplish its mission, DHS should ensure it has comprehensive policies specifically addressing off-duty conduct abroad and make certain all employees traveling and working abroad are adequately trained and acknowledge and understand these policies,” the report said.
