Federal authorities say a Somerton woman is accused of trying to smuggle nearly three pounds of methamphetamine into southern Arizona by concealing it on her body.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the  Port of San Luis say an SUV driven by 44-year-old Adriana Palencia-Rodriguez was selected for further inspection Monday. During a pat-down search, officers say they found packages in her purse, underneath each breast and in her groin area.  They say the five packages contained over two-pounds of methamphetamine worth nearly $43,000.
