CALEXICO — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found 12 pounds of methamphetamine estimated to be worth about $231,000 in a vehicle at the Calexico East Port of Entry on Friday.

Around 10 a.m., a 37-year-old female U.S. citizen driving a 2004 Ford Expedition approached the port, and a CBP canine team alerted to the vehicle she was driving, according to a CBP press release.

Officers then found 31 wrapped packages of methamphetamine in the vehicle’s transfer case, a component of the transmission. The narcotics had a total weight of 12 pounds.

Neyba de Let Vazquez-Flores was taken into custody of Homeland Security Investigation agents for further processing and transported to Imperial County jail where she faces a felony charge of importation of a controlled substance.

Vazquez-Flores admitted she knew of the narcotics and stated she was to be paid $2,000 to smuggle it into the United States, according to the court complaint.
