(37 year old woman caught trying to smuggle drugs)…She was caught this week at the Andrade Port.

Elizabeth Anne Marie Hirales, a US Citizen, was walking across the border from Mexico when she was detained. The Winterhaven resident was referred to the secondary inspection area, where a detector dog alerted to her groin area. Two female Customs and Border Protection officers conducted a pat down. They discovered a bulge in the woman’s groin area. Hirales later admitted she had crystal methamphetamine inside her body cavity. The woman was taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center, where a latex balloon was removed. The balloon contained 4.41 ounces of methamphetamine. Hirales was arrested and booked into Imperial County Jail. The CBP seized the drugs.
