TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of San Luis arrested a 23-year-old woman for an alleged attempt to smuggle more than 21 pounds of methamphetamine August 7.
Officers referred Stephany Anaya, a U.S. citizen living in San Luis, Sonora, Mexico, for a secondary inspection of her Dodge sedan. After a CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the vehicle’s front and rear bumpers, officers removed 21 pounds of meth valued at more than $63,000.
Officers seized the drugs and vehicle, and turned Anaya over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
