Arizona border officers: Mom hid fentanyl under baby in stroller

Customs officers in Nogales found five pounds of fentanyl inside a stroller where an infant girl was sitting.

Officers arrested a 24-year-old Mexican woman on Monday at the Morley pedestrian gate after a drug-smelling drug alerted to the stroller, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The infant and another child were turned over to the woman's mother. 

Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and officers used protective equipment to remove the drugs, CBP said.
