Officers referred a 36-year-old woman for additional questioning as she attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico last night in her Mazda sedan. After an alert to the presence of what it is trained to detect by a CBP canine, officers discovered multiple packages of meth within the vehicle’s doors and quarter panels of nearly 90 pounds, worth $269,000.
