Officers also reported finding an M4 rifle and a Tech 9 pistol with an ammunition magazine. The weapons were manifested as toys and also destined for Guyana.

According to Christopher D. Matson, CBP Port Director at MIA, the “significant seizures” are a way to “disrupt dangerous criminal networks.”
