Officers referred the 24-year-old woman for further inspection as she attempted to enter the U.S. via the pedestrian lanes early Friday. The meth concealed inside her body weighed approximately three ounces and worth more than $550.

On Sunday, officers selected a Chevrolet SUV for an additional search after questioning the 35-year-old male driver. A CBP narcotics detection canine then alerted to the vehicle’s spare tire where officers found multiple packages containing nearly 30 pounds of meth worth $900,000.
