Border Officers Find Three Pounds of Cocaine Taped to Phoenix Woman's Butt
Today in Found at the Border: Phoenix resident Dora Gutierrez's butt is not that big.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, almost three pounds of cocaine were taped to Gutierrez's booty when she tried to come into the United States through the port of entry in Nogales on Monday.
According to CBP, a dog sniffed out the blow in her shorts.
Officers then discovered the six packages were duct-taped to Gutierrez's body, like so:

According to a federal complaint, Gutierrez admitted to being paid $800 to bring the cocaine from Nogales, Mexico, to Phoenix.
This is the third time in just a couple of weeks that officers at the border have found drugs in someone's shorts: A 17-year-old kid was found with heroin duct-taped to his thighs in San Luis, and a 16-year-old kid was found with a pound-and-a-half of meth stuffed in his underwear in Nogales.
Gutierrez, a U.S. citizen, faces a federal cocaine-smuggling charge.
