San Luis CBP Officers Catch Woman Using Her Child To Smuggle Cocaine

A 12-year-old girl was found to have 2 pounds of cocaine wrapped around her torso

TUCSON – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a mother Friday in connection to a failed drug smuggling attempt involving the use of her 12-year-old daughter, at Arizona’s Port of San Luis.

Officers referred a 35-year-old woman and her 3 minor children for an additional search of a Nissan hatchback as they attempted to enter the U.S. from Mexico on Friday afternoon. A CBP canine alert to the 12-year-old daughter, led officers to discover more than 2 pounds of cocaine, worth almost $24,000 wrapped around her torso.

CBP officers seized the vehicle as well as the drugs. The case was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.


  1. Oh no, and mom was so close to “mother of the year” in her section eight housing project, well there’s always next year in cell block six…
    While stupidity doesn’t have to be multi generational, apparently criminology does….
    In the western world dumbass parents strap cocaine to thier kids, in the middle-east dumbass parents strap bombs to their kids.
    Sadly children do not come with instruction manuals, otherwise we’d know better.
    The violation of law is firmly overshadowed by the violation of trust of a parent not to willfully, deliberately and intentionally place their offspring in harms way.
