Arizona Woman Tries to Smuggle Meth in Powdered Milk

NOGALES, Ariz. – Authorities say a Nogales woman has been arrested for trying to smuggle 1.5 pounds of crystal meth in a can of powder milk across the Arizona border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers were screening pedestrians Tuesday afternoon at the Nogales port of entry when they became suspicious of a woman, whose name was not immediately released.

Officers searched the woman’s belongings and found a plastic bag of crystal meth concealed in the bottom of a powdered milk can she was carrying. Authorities say the crystal meth had an estimated street value of more than $70,000.

The drug was seized and the woman was turned over to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for further investigation and prosecution.
