SAN LUIS, Ariz. (AP) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers have seized nearly half a million dollars’ worth of methamphetamines from a vehicle that tried to enter Arizona.
CBP officers referred a 29-year-old woman for a secondary inspection of her SUV at the San Luis Port on Monday.
A narcotics detection canine alerted officers to drugs under the hood and they found 20 packages of methamphetamines from a non-factory compartment weighing nearly 32 pounds.
The vehicle and narcotics were processed for seizure.
Authorities say the woman was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. Her 10-year-old daughter was turned over to the custody of her grandmother. Their names and hometowns weren’t immediately released.
