DOUGLAS, AZ (CBS5) -

Two came to the Douglas port with a plan but it turned out to be a waste of their time.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers said a 61-year-old Douglas woman and a 50-year-old Mexican national were searched as they tried to pass through the port on Thursday.

Officers found two packages of marijuana wrapped around each woman's waist.

The packages weighed about three pounds each, according to CBP.

The drugs that were seized had a combined value of $2,860.

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