A 54-year-old Mexican woman was arrested Wednesday after U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Naco Port of Entry said they found about 150 pounds of assorted drugs.
During a search of the Ford pickup truck Emilia Reyes-Balderrama was driving, officers said they found 9 pounds of heroin valued at an estimated $126,000; nearly 80 pounds of cocaine worth more than $725,000; and about 64 pounds of methamphetamine valued at nearly $987,000.
Combined, officers seized more than $1.8 million in illegal drugs.
The drugs and vehicle were seized. Reyes-Balderrama was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security investigations.
