Formerly bankrupt Anett Pikula, 39, was ‘overly talkative’ with guards after she drove up to the crossing at Lukeville, Arizona, in her 2006 gold-colored Mercedes Benz for a primary inspection.
Her alleged behavior sparked suspicion among the officers, and they chose to refer her for a secondary inspection, during which a U.S. Customs and Border Protection K-9 was deployed.
The dog alerted the officials to a hidden compartment inside Pikula’s car, where they found six packages of cocaine, totaling 13 pounds and worth nearly $134,000, a CBP statement says.
Speaking to the Associated Press, CBP spokesman Garrett Reinhart said Pikula, who lives in Phoenix, Arizona, had been ‘overly talkative’ with border officers at the crossing on Sunday.
