U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Brownsville and Matamoros International Bridge intercepted a little more than 13 pounds of methamphetamine Tuesday.

Court records indicate that a woman named Jackeline Hortencia Ramirez is being charged with possession with intent to distribute a similar mount of meth. A criminal complaint for the event wasn’t yet available Wednesday morning, but Ramirez is the only person arrested by federal officials Tuesday in Brownsville to be charged with attempting to smuggle a little more than 13 pounds of methamphetamine.

According to a CBP press release, a 35-year-old woman attempted to cross into the U.S. in a gray 2009 Nissan Maxima. CBP officers referred the U.S. citizen to secondary where authorities discovered 10 packages of methamphetamine with the use of non-intrusive imaging technology.

CBP’s press release doesn’t provide any other details on where the narcotics were found.

Authorities estimate the drugs have a value of approximately $262,000.
