The Arizona Department of Public Safety estimates the street value of one pound of meth to be about $7,500, which puts the street value of the drugs in the Yuma bust at almost $353,000.
"[Drug traffickers] are going to use whatever means they see necessary to try and smuggle and transport drugs," Shaun Kuzia of Yuma Sector Border Patrol told Yuma television station KSWT 13. "In this case, they're using two seemingly innocent females with children in the back to try and smuggle drugs to Phoenix."
The children of the arrested women were returned to their fathers. That's one "road trip" the kids probably will never forget.
