Drugs, guns, cars and money are just some of the items confiscated on a typical day by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). But what happens to this contraband after it is seized? In a special episode, Border Wars reveals what happens to all the loot. Everything that CBP confiscates at the border must be handled with care: stored, accounted for and transported with the utmost security, and disposed of in a safe and legally mandated manner.
