Thank you for your quick response and turnaround to my FOIA request #CBP-2018-003077.
There were two problems with the response:
1. The data doesn't go back 10 years as requested, and
2. The responsive documents did not include the specific locations of drug seizures, as requested.

Please let me know if these can be included. I appreciate your help.
