An Arizona woman was arrested last week after she was caught smuggling thousands of dollars worth of meth inside of burritos.

According to Customs and Border Protection, the 23-year-old Nogales, Ariz., woman crossed the Port of Nogales pedestrian bridge and was caught by a drug-sniffing dog.

Officers found more than a pound of meth wrapped inside tortillas in a bag she was carrying.

The meth was reportedly worth more than $3,000.
