Three women were arrested Tuesday during two separate attempts to smuggle more than $130,000 worth of heroin and methamphetamine.

Customs and Border Protection officers at the Nogales port first arrested two adult female Mexican nationals traveling with minor children, then seized a 2000 Jeep after they attempted to enter the United States with nearly 7 pounds of heroin valued at almost $94,000.

Just before midnight, a CBP officer stationed at the DeConcini pedestrian crossing referred a 48-year-old Tucson woman for additional questioning. The woman was subsequently searched, and officers discovered three packages of methamphetamine weighing more than 2 pounds and valued at more than $36,000.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations took custody of the three women.
