Woman tried to smuggle drugs by taping to butt

NOGALES, Ariz. -

Drug smugglers have long tried to be creative in concealing their wares. Customs and Border Protection thwarted one of those creative smuggling attempts Tuesday.

Tuesday, CBP officers arrested a 39-year-old Phoenix woman after finding 3 pounds of cocaine taped to her butt.

Dora Ann Gutierrez was arrested at the Morley pedestrian gate when a drug-sniffing canine alerted to the presence of drugs on her person.

Officers found 3 pounds of cocaine, worth $24,000, on Gutierrez.

In April, authorities reported six cases of people trying to smuggle drugs into southern Arizona in their undergarments.
 
They say an 18-year-old man had one pound of methamphetamines concealed in his underwear and a 23-year-old woman had four pounds of heroin concealed in her bra.
 
In addition, four teenage girls had heroin strapped to the front of their bodies and tucked under the waistbands of their underwear.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
