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.
