SAN LUIS, AZ (CBS5) -

A woman from San Luis, Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico has been taken into custody after she tried to smuggle 36 pounds of drugs into the U.S.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection said officers arrested Alba L. Siqueiros-Bustamante, 45, after a drug dog alerted them to 15 packages of cocaine in the back quarter panels of her Pontiac Sedan.

The drugs were valued at more than $331,000.

She was turned over to ICE's Homeland Security Investigations.
