Nearly 30 pounds of meth seized in southern Arizona

TUBAC, AZ - Border Patrol agents seized nearly 30 pounds of methamphetamine hidden inside a car in the southern Arizona community of Tubac.

The agency says a woman who was driving the sedan was arrested Monday night after a drug-sniffing dog at a checkpoint on Interstate 19 led agents to the discovery of the drugs.

Twenty-seven packages of meth were found in between the car's back seat and trunk.

Authorities say the woman was arrested. She's a U.S. citizen, but her name and age weren't immediately released.
