EAGLE PASS — Two teenagers were stopped by U.S. Customs and Border officers at Eagle Pass attempting to smuggle $47, 550 worth of methamphetamines, according to a spokesman.

An 18-year-old Eagle Pass woman and a 15-year-old were driving a 2011 Chevrolet Malibu when they were stopped for routine checks at the Eagle Pass International Bridge I. During the checks it was discovered the car was reported as stolen and there was a missing juvenile report for the 15-year-old.

The 15-year-old was found carrying several packages of methamphetamines weighing a total of 3.17 pounds, according to a press release. She was turned over to Maverick County Sheriff’s office and the 18-year-old will face federal prosecution with Homeland Security.

“It’s not the kind of thing we see very often there,” said a spokesman about the age of the people involved.
