TUCSON, Ariz. – Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of Nogales arrested a 58-year-old Tucson woman Oct. 11 for attempting to smuggle nearly 16 pounds of methamphetamine, worth an estimated $48,000.

Officers working at the Dennis DeConcini crossing used a CBP narcotics-detection canine to find the drugs hidden beneath the center console of her Nissan sedan during a secondary inspection.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicle, and turned the subject over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
