A 26-year-old Nogales, Sonora, woman was arrested by Customs agents after trying to enter the United States with more than five pounds of meth taped to her legs, officials said.
On Aug. 16, the woman was crossing at the Morley pedestrian crossing in Nogales when she was selected for a secondary inspection. There, agents found the packages taped to her shins, according to a Customs and Border Protection news release. The drugs were worth more than $15,000. The woman was turned over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
