Posted on 05/08/2017 | About Mexico

No it wasn't a Kardashian, or even a Kardashian wannabe (as far as we know) but a woman sporting an ample posterior was caught last week trying to smuggle heroin from Mexico to the US. Yes, she had three pounds of the white stuff by strapped to her buttocks. Might we use the term horse’s ass?

Agents spotted her when she attempted to enter the US from Mexico via the pedestrian lanes. The 47-year-old woman was referred for further inspection by US Customs and Border Protection (CPB) officers at the Port of Nogales.

Officers found the woman to be in possession of nearly three pounds of heroin worth approximately US $45,000.

It turned out to be a busy day. Authorities at the port had seized a combined 68 pounds of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin worth more than US $410,000.

Early in their shift, officers located nearly 22 pounds of meth, worth $65,000, in the rear quarter panels of a Ford SUV driven by a 38-year-old woman from Peoria, Arizona, as she was returning from Mexico.

Then agents took a closer look at a 40-year-old Mexican and his Nissan sedan when he applied for entry into the US.

Officers used a CBP narcotics-detection canine, who located more than 31 pounds of meth and 2.5 pounds of cocaine hidden in the vehicle's floor area.

The drugs were estimated to be worth a combined $123,000.

Ten along came a 26-year-old woman from Rio Rico, Arizona, was also stopped and searched as she returned from Mexico.

Police found more than 10 pounds of heroin worth more than $178,000 in the back seat of her Honda sedan.

All four individuals were arrested and turned over to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations along with their drugs and vehicles.
