Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents referred a Toyota Sequoia for inspection just after 4:00 a.m. Saturday morning after a Border Patrol canine alerted to the vehicle. The dog’s nose led agents to 207 packages of meth hidden in the doors, quarter panels, floor compartments, and the spare tire.

Agents arrested the driver, a 31-year-old woman from Tucson. The vehicle and narcotics were seized. The woman, drugs, and the SUV were turned over to ICE Homeland Security Investigations for further processing and investigation.
