TUCSON, AZ (WCMH) – An Arizona woman was arrested after Customs officials said she tried to bring burritos packed with methamphetamine across the border.

It happened on May 20 at the Morley Pedestrian Gate along the border with Mexico.

A 23-year-old woman was crossing through the gate and was flagged for further inspection. A drug sniffing dog led officers to discover the drugs wrapped in tortillas.

Officers seized about a pound of meth, worth more than $3,000.

According to a criminal complaint, the woman admitted she was paid $500 to bring the drugs across the border.
