Woman Attempts To Smuggle $3,000 Drug-Filled Burritos Into The U.S.
A 23-year-old woman has been arrested for attempting to smuggle methamphetamine-filled burritos across the Mexican border into the United States. Her plan was foiled by drug sniffing dogs that were able to smell the illicit narcotics through the tasty tortillas that concealed the drugs from border agents.
Susy Laborin states she was offered $500 to smuggle approximatley 0.46 kilograms through the border town of Nogales, AZ and deliver the package to an unknown third party.

A criminal report states that Laborin attempted to carry a plastic bag filled with burritos across the border. Drug sniffing dogs quickly recognized the smell and tipped border agents off to the suspicious package. A Customs and Border Protection Officer searched the bag and immediately noticed the non-traditional burrito filling and tested the contents. The field test yielded positive results for the characteristics of methamphetamine.
Each of the burritos was determined to carry approximatley $1,500 worth of methamphetamine. Luckily for Laborin the burritos were determined to contain no guacamole, which, as anyone who has ever been to Chipotle could tell you, would have cost extra.
