Authorities have arrested a woman for trying to smuggle drugs in her underwear.

Customs and Border Protection officers stopped a woman Thursday in Nogales trying to enter the U.S. at the Dennis DeConcini pedestrian crossing.

A secondary search found "multiple packages, containing nearly two pounds" of methamphetamine, according to a news release.

The drugs, which authorities valued at nearly $5,700, were stuffed into her bra.

The woman, who was not identified, was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement
