February 25th 2012 · 5 Comments
CBP officers working the San Luis Port on Thursday referred a 32-year-old Nogales, Sonora woman for a secondary inspection of her vehicle.
Officers say they found 19 packages of meth inside the vehicle’s back seats. They say the drugs have a value of more than $325,000.
The drugs and vehicle were seized and the woman was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. Her name hasn’t been released.
It was the second methamphetamine seizure in the last five days at the San Luis Port. Officers seized 30 pounds of meth and arrested a 23-year-old Nogales man for drug smuggling last Saturday.
