Volvos are renowned for their comparative safety. But, federal agents say one woman found a more creative way to utilize hers – to smuggle over 100 pounds of drugs across the U.S. border with Mexico.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents said they arrested 19-year-old Arizona woman Yamileth Guadalupe Lucero on Jan. 8 following a routine inspection at a checkpoint. During that inspection, authorities alleged that they found bricks of marijuana hidden in the floors and roof of her Volvo.
Feds added that they believe the street value of the drugs to be around $60,000.
After seizing the car and the drugs, CBP agents then turned Lucero over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
