CBP Officers Seize $70K Worth of Methamphetamine

Release Date: 
June 24, 2015

TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a 22-year-old San Luis, Arizona woman on June 19 for allegedly attempting to smuggle more than 23 pounds of methamphetamine through the Port of San Luis.

Officers referred Suzette Escobedo for a secondary inspection of her Nissan sedan as she attempted to enter the United States. After a CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs in the fuel tank, officers removed packages of meth worth nearly $70,000.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicle. CBP officers arrested Escobedo and turned her over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
