HOLBROOK, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a Tucson woman is in custody after cocaine was found on a bus that stopped in eastern Arizona.

Navajo County Sheriff’s officials say 55-year-old Norma L. Bowen is jailed on $60,000 bond on suspicion of transportation of a narcotic drug, possession of a narcotic drug for sale and possession of drug paraphernalia.

It was unclear Monday if she has a lawyer.

Sheriff’s officials say drug detection dogs located cocaine in a passenger bag on a Greyhound bus Saturday in Holbrook.

They say a deputy became suspicious when no passengers claimed the bag.

Authorities say about 7.4 pounds of cocaine was found inside the bag with a street value of about $90,000.

Several passengers told authorities they helped Bowen put the bag in an upper compartment of the bus.
