TUCSON - Border Patrol agents arrested two United States citizens this week for attempting to smuggle narcotics inside their undergarments.

During the encounter, agents discovered one pound of methamphetamine concealed in an underwear worn by an 18-year-old man.
On Thursday, Customs and Border Protection officers from the Dennis DeConcini Port of Entry arrested a 23-year-old woman for attempting to smuggle four pounds of heroin concealed in her bra.
