Authorities said they've arrested a woman for trying to smuggle nearly a pound of heroin across the border that she had tucked inside her bra.

Custom and Border Protection officers said Selena Andrea Perez-Cruz, 18, was caught at the Dennis DeConcini Port when she tried to enter the U.S. through a pedestrian lane.

The heroin was seized and Perez was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
