U.S. Customs and Border Protection has arrested a Matamoros woman accused of trying to smuggle more than $963,000 in cocaine into the United States, said an agency press release.

Rosaura Lopez Jimenez, 22, was arrested Thursday afternoon at B&M International Bridge and later charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and one count of conspiracy to posses a controlled substance with intent to distribute, court records show.

On Friday morning Lopez went before U.S. Magistrate Judge Felix Recio, who ordered she be held without bond pending a detention hearing on October 27 and remanded her to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.

The arrest took place when Lopez drove a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am to an inspection booth and was referred to a secondary inspection area, CBP said.

While searching through the vehicle at the inspection area, officers discovered two compartments within the walls of the sedan, records show.

Sunny, a drug detecting canine, detected the smell of narcotics coming from the compartments in the car; once the compartments were opened officers found 16 bundles of cocaine weighing more than 30 pounds, CBP said.

Officials said the cocaine has a street value of $963,000.
