In Minnesota, officers from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Field Operations stopped a woman who was attempting to smuggle marijuana at the Warroad Port of Entry on Sunday.
The 26-year-old from Big Island, Ontario, was traveling with two other Canadian citizens when she was stopped as she applied for admission to the United States.
The car was flagged for a vehicle inspection and CBP officers noticed that the vehicle smelled strongly of marijuana.
Eventually, the woman confessed that she had been attempting to smuggle marijuana over the border into the U.S. However, the illegal substance was found to be hidden within one of her body cavities, not the vehicle.
At a local medical facility, medical staff found she was carrying approximately 13 grams of marijuana internally. The would-be smuggler was issued a citation by the Roseau County Sheriff’s Office and the drugs were confiscated.
Area port director Jason Schmelz issued a statement saying, “This seizure illustrates the great lengths that people will go through in an attempt to import contraband into the United States, undetected.”
