A Tucson woman was arrested last week for trying to smuggling narcotics across the border.
Customs and Border Protection officers say that Elizabeth Borquez, 32, was referred to a secondary inspection of her Honda sedan while attempting to enter the U.S. through the port of Nogales.
A drug-sniffing canine alerted to the presence of drugs, and officers allegedly found 15 pounds of cocaine and 4 pounds of methamphetamine from an airbox under the front left fender.
The drugs were worth almost $202,000.
Borquez was turned over to ICE, and the drugs and vehicle were processed for seizure.
