Mom Traveling With Children Arrested For Smuggling Cocaine

41 pounds of Cocaine Seized at Nogales Port of Entry from Mom.

Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of Nogales’ DeConcini crossing arrested a 32-year-old woman returning from Mexico with her three children late Sunday, after discovering more than 41 pounds of cocaine in her vehicle.

Officers discovered the narcotics, valued at approximately $465,000, after a CBP narcotics-detection canine alerted to the vehicle’s rear wheel-wells during secondary inspection.

Officers arrested the female driver after the discovery of the narcotics was made. The vehicle and illicit  narcotics were seized. The woman was turned over to U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, while her juvenile children were turned over to the custody of a family member.
