Officers referred Ruth Escobedo-Armenta, of Mexicali, Sonora, Mexico, for a secondary inspection of her Nissan SUV when she attempted to enter the U.S. on June 7. After a CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs, officers found 22 packages of meth worth almost $67,000.

Officers seized the drugs and vehicle, and referred Escobedo to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
