NOGALES, Ariz. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say they have seized nearly $546,000 worth of cocaine that a woman tried to smuggle into the United States in her vehicle.
The agency said Friday that the bust took place the day before at Arizona's Port of Nogales.
A police dog trained to detect narcotics found nearly 23 pounds of cocaine hidden inside the dashboard of the woman's SUV during an inspection at the border.
Authorities arrested the 35-year-old woman from Hermosillo, Mexico.
