San Luis, Ariz. (KSWT News 13) - A Mexican woman was arrested Monday, Dec. 17, 2012, at the Port of San Luis for attempting to smuggle nearly 32 pounds of methamphetamine into the United States.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers referred Amy Jean Diaz, 38, of San Luis, Mexico, for additional inspection of her Ford van.

After a narcotics detection dog alerted to the presence of drugs, a further search led to the discovery of 30 packages of methamphetamine hidden throughout the vehicle.

The drugs and vehicle were processed for seizure. Diaz was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.

Authorities say the meth had an estimated value of $494,000.
