TUCSON – U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered 227 pounds of meth hidden in a vehicle driven by a 31-year-old woman from Tucson early Saturday morning at the I-19 immigration checkpoint north of Nogales.

Border Patrol agents, working the Tucson Sector, referred a Toyota Sequoia for inspection just after 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning after a Border Patrol canine alerted to the vehicle. The dog’s nose led agents to 207 packages of meth hidden in the doors, quarter panels, floor compartments, and the spare tire, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Agents arrested the woman and her vehicle and narcotics were seized.

The woman, drugs, and the SUV were turned over to ICE Homeland Security Investigations for further processing and investigation.
