Where’s the beef is what United States border agents wanted to know when a 23-year-old Arizona woman crossed the border from Mexico last week with a bag full of burritos.
They might have asked too about the missing guacamole and sour cream but they probably had other questions for Susy Laborin, whose burritos instead contained an estimated half a kilogram of methamphetamine.
Laborin entered the U.S. through the Morley Pedestrian Gate in Nogales but was referred for further inspection. A sniffer dog detected what was actually inside the non-meat burritos.
The value of the drug was estimated at US $3,000; the woman claimed she was to be paid $500 for transporting it to Tuscon.
The Customs and Border Protection Office later tweeted that officers in Nogales, “hungry for a drug seizure, bag a pound of meth burritos.”
