TUCSON, AZ (KPHO/KTVK) -
A 19-year-old Phoenix area woman was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly attempting to smuggle a weapon and stolen vehicle into Mexico, U.S. Customs and Border Protection authorities said.
It happened at the Dennis DeConcini crossing at the Port of Nogales.
CBP officers conducted a more thorough search of a vehicle driven by Cecily Abed. They said they found a tactical rifle, four empty ammunition magazines and a small amount of methamphetamine and heroin.
Officers said they also learned the vehicle was reported stolen, according to Avondale Police Department records.
Authorities seized the weapon, magazines, drugs and vehicle, and turned Abed over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
