U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers referred Symba May Smith for a further inspection of her Chevrolet truck when she attempted to enter the United States. After a CBP narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs within the firewall of the vehicle, officers removed five packages containing more than 12 pounds of cocaine worth an estimated $126,000, and one package containing 6.5 pounds of methamphetamine worth more than $19,000.

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