CBP officers reportedly found nine packages hidden within the 2002 Ford Explorer she was driving, according to a press release.

The child was turned over to family members, and CBP seized the narcotics and vehicle and turned Galindo over to Homeland Security Investigations, according to a press release.

Galindo is being held without bail and will face a judge next week for routine preliminary and detention hearings, court documents show.
