Comments Off on San Luis CBP Officers Arrest Woman for Smuggling Methamphetamine

San Luis, Arizona – A 26-year-old Mexican national, Luz Garcia, was arrested early Thursday morning for attempting to smuggle more than 56 pounds of methamphetamine into the United States through the San Luis Port.

Customs and Border Protection officers assigned to the San Luis Port referred Garcia for a secondary inspection of her Pontiac sedan. Officers conducting a search of the vehicle located 50 packages of methamphetamine inside the vehicle’s firewall.

The drugs and vehicle were processed for seizure. The driver was arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.

Individuals arrested may be charged by complaint, the method by which a person is charged with criminal activity, which raises no inference of guilt. An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
