NOGALES - Customs and Border Protection officers arrested an elderly woman with nearly three pounds of cocaine strapped to her body Tuesday.
CBP says officers working the Morley Pedestrian Gate in Nogales stopped a 76-year-old woman walking into the U.S. for a day of shopping when an officer became suspicious. An officer referred the woman for further inspection.
CBP officers found a package of cocaine strapped to the woman's leg, with an estimated street value of $127,000. The drugs were seized, and the woman was taken into Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody for further investigation.
