NACO, Ariz. -- A Mexican national was arrested Thursday after she allegedly tried to smuggle nearly $400,000 worth of methamphetamine into the U.S.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the 31-year-old woman was referred for a secondary inspection at the Port of Naco, at which time officers allegedly found packages of meth in her jeep.

The drugs were valued at $392,150, and weighed more than 25 pounds.

The meth and the woman’s vehicle were processed for seizure.

The woman was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
