San Luis CBP Officers Arrest Meth Smuggler
TUCSON, Ariz. – Customs and Border Protection officers at Arizona’s Port of San Luis arrested a 50-year-old Yuma woman after finding more than 41 pounds of methamphetamine in her Chevy Friday afternoon.
Officers referred the woman for a secondary inspection of her Chevy GEO as she entered the United States through the port. When a CBP narcotics-detection canine screened the vehicle, it alerted to the firewall, as well as the doors, which contained multiple packages of meth, worth more than $123,000.
Following the suspect’s arrest, CBP officers turned her over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and seized the vehicle and drugs.
