It weighed almost four pounds with an estimated street value of $8,600. Later the same day at the Downtown Port, a 21-year-old female, also a Mexican Citizen, attempted to walk across the border. A CBP officer noticed an abnormal bulge on the woman’s thighs. She was escorted to a secure location. A search revealed two packages strapped to each of her thighs. Both tested positive for methamphetamine. The packages weighed about 3 pounds, with an estimated street value of $8,000.
