Officials of Customs and Border Protection said Friday that a Mexican woman age 18 was arrested on Wednesday in the city of Nogales, in the most recent case of this type.

They added that the woman had nearly 1.8 kilograms (4 pounds) of heroin – with an estimated value of $ 47,000 – with tape attached to her abdomen.

Officials said a California woman, 37, was arrested days earlier with almost three kilos of heroin hidden under her bra.

On February 21, another Mexican 18 was also arrested with a pound (1 pound) of drugs taped to the abdomen.

Authorities would not comment on this method, apparently growing, of smuggling drugs.
