U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a woman who allegedly had 41 pounds of cocaine in her car when returning from Mexico via the Nogales DeConcini port of entry with three children Sunday.

The CBP says the 32-year-old woman faces narcotics smuggling charges after officers found the drugs inside her rear wheel wells.

A family member picked up her children.
