TUCSON, Ariz. – Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a 29-year-old Tucson woman May 5 after finding nearly $5,700 worth of methamphetamine stuffed in her bra.
After officers working at the Port of Nogales’ Dennis DeConcini pedestrian crossing questioned the woman, they referred her for a secondary inspection and found multiple packages containing nearly two pounds of the drug.
Officers seized the drugs and turned the subject over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
