SAN YSIDRO (CNS) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials seized nearly 29 pounds of shark fins illegally brought into the country at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, officials confirmed Friday.
A 54-year-old woman entered the border through the pedestrian crossing about 10:15 a.m. on Wednesday.
