"Personnel of La Coma checkpoint examined a tented truck, which was on its way to Reynosa, Tamaulipas. Gamma scanning showed the cargo had anomalies", the military said in a communique published on its website late on Friday.
The Defence Ministry added that the drug batch, weighing 153 kilograms (337 pounds) was found inside the truck’s false bottom.
In October, the servicemen seized a 226-kilogram batch with the use of the gamma scanning devices that have been helping the authorities curb drug smuggling.
In early November, the military said it destroyed nearly 15.5 tonnes of drugs in operations held in the country’s 10 states.
Criminality rates in Mexico have surged over recent years.
The increase in violence has been reportedly associated with drug production and confrontation between drug cartels over control of drug transit to the United States. Last year was marked by the highest rate of homicides — more than 33,000 — on the record.
Since 2006, when then-President Felipe Calderon ordered the military to crack down on drug cartels, gang violence has been blamed for over 200,000 murders.
