The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency released a statement Tuesday announcing the arrest of a woman who was found carrying more than a pound of methamphetamine disguised as a bag of burritos.

According to CBP, officers stopped the 23-year-old Nogales, Ariz., woman at the Morley Pedestrian gate on Friday.

A narcotics canine led them to the hidden contraband, which officers estimated carried a street value of roughly $3,000.

This wasn’t the only narcotics stop of the weekend.

CBP officers also busted four Mexican nationals — in two separate arrests — carrying a total of 30 pounds of cocaine and 10 more pounds of meth.

Officers also found 27 pounds of meth and three pounds of heroin lining the bed of a 60-year-old Glenndale woman’s pickup truck.

CBP estimates that the total worth of the narcotics seized over the weekend exceeds $600,000.
