TUCSON, Ariz. – A 28-year-old woman was arrested for attempting to smuggle nearly 4 ounces of methamphetamine inside her vaginal cavity on Thursday morning.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Arizona Port of San Luis arrested the woman, a U.S. citizen who attempted to enter the U.S. via the pedestrian lane. When going through the area, a narcotics detection canine alerted to the presence of drugs. The woman was sent for questioning and admitted to having the drugs concealed inside her vagina.
“The concealment of narcotics inside the body is an extremely dangerous method often attempted by smugglers,” said John Schwamm, San Luis Port Director. “It can be instantly fatal should the narcotics seep through the packaging and be absorbed into the body.”
The drugs that carried an approximate $700 street value were seized and the woman was arrested for drug smuggling. She was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.For late-breaking news, follow 24/7 Headline News on our Los Angeles County Facebook group, Riverside County Facebook group, Coachella Valley News group, US News group, Victor Valley/Inland Empire Facebook group.
