A 17-year-old girl was arrested Tuesday for attempting to smuggle over a pound of methamphetamine in her underwear.
Customs and Border Protection officers say when the teen tried to cross the border through the Port of Nogales, she was selected for an additional inspection. During that inspection, they found a package of meth.
Officials say the seized meth is worth nearly $18,000.
CBP says the teen, who is a Nogales, Sonora, Mexico resident, was referred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
Her name was not released.
