LOS ANGELES (AP) - Federal authorities say a woman arrested at Los Angeles International Airport is suspected of trying to smuggle about $160,000 worth of crystal meth into the country from Mexico.

Customs and Border Protection says the 27-year-old appeared nervous and was singled out for further inspection after arriving Wednesday from Guadalajara.

Officers discovered a false compartment in her suitcase with numerous wrapped packages containing drugs.

Officials withheld the suspect’s name but said she is a U.S. citizen from San Ysidro.
