Customs: Woman used dreamcatchers to try to smuggle meth

COLUMBUS, N. M. – A 25-year-old woman is facing charges after the border of the V. S. customs officials say they tried to smuggle liquid methamphetamine in Native American-style dreamcatchers.

The U. S. Customs and Border Protection officials say the woman was detained Sunday in the Columbus, New Mexico Port of Entry after a drug sniffing dog alerted customs. The officers found six dreamcatchers in the wife’s 2000 Dodge Neon.

Officials say that the dreamcatchers’ rings were made up of rubber tube filled with a liquid that later tested positive for methamphetamine.
