A 28-year-old Mexican woman tried to smuggle 45+ pounds of methamphetamine through the Interstate 8 checkpoint, Campo Border Patrol Station in Pine Valley. The woman was arrested after the drug-sniffing dogs alerted the agents who found 38 bundles of the drug hidden in the front and back seats of her 2006 Ford Fusion.

The woman arrived at the checkpoint at around 8:45 p.m. on Sept. 14 and was sent to secondary inspection, where the agents found the drug worth $454,600. The woman and drugs were turned over to the DEA.
