[Ed. – Last place a border agent would look, no?]
Today in Found at the Border: A woman was caught trying to smuggle a pound of meth into the United States by hiding the stash in her vagina, according to authorities.
A federal complaint says agents noticed part of a broken condom hanging out of 31-year-old Claudia Ibarra’s pants as they patted her down at the port of entry in San Luis on Tuesday.
Ibarra, a U.S. citizen, was chosen for a pat-down because a Customs and Border Protection officer noticed she was acting very nervous.
Once officers found the broken condom during a pat-down in a secured room, officers asked Ibarra to remove her pants and underpants.
Ibarra complied, and one officer “was able to see a piece of plastic protruding from her groin area,” according to the federal complaint.
“At that time, Ibarra admitted to having a package of methamphetamine concealed inside of her body,” the complaint states.
