TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Federal officers seized more than 60 pounds (27 kilograms) of methamphetamine after finding the drugs hidden in a woman's car at the Nogales port of entry's Mariposa Crossing.

Customs and Border Protection said the woman taken into custody Wednesday night is a 23-year-old Tucson resident but did not release her name.

According to CBP, the methamphetamine was found in the car's panels and firewall after a narcotics detection dog alerted to an order it's trained to detect.

CBP estimated the drugs' value at over $182,400.
