U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers have arrested an Arizona woman who they say attempted to smuggle a pound of methamphetamine inside burritos through a Nogales, Arizona, entry port.
The woman, 23, was crossing from Mexico into the U.S. She was referred for further inspection after crossing through the Morley Pedestrian Gate, the agency said this week.
A narcotics-detection canine led officers to slightly more than a pound of meth, disguised as a bag of burritos.
The tortilla wrapped drugs were reportedly worth upwards of $3,000.
Officers seized the drugs and turned the suspect over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
