20 Pounds of Meth Seized at Border

SAN LUIS, Ariz. (AP) — Customs and Border Protection officers in southern Arizona say they’ve seized more than 20 pounds of methamphetamines and arrested a Mexican woman in the case.

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.

  1. way to go. Just be careful out there. God bless.

  2. I think it was headed for the White House because the Obamas feel they are rich enough to get off crack…………

  3. Tom Dollar says:

    We must CLOSE the southern border & eject ALL non legal non AMERICANS & TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK !!!!

  4. all that stimulas money could have gone to secure the border , for some reason NO president wants to do that . I wonder why?

  5. I wonder how many terrorists are entering. If we close our borders the muslims will not be able to enter and control our country. Maybe that is why they are still open.

Why do you think the drug cartels are more violent in Mexico than the U.S.A.
