EL PASO — Customs and Border Protection agents in El Paso say a woman who initially told inspectors she had nothing to declare as she was entering the country from Mexico was found carrying 227 pounds of contraband bologna in her car.
The 23 tubes of meat were hidden under the rear seats of her car.
Bologna contains pork and isn't allowed into the U.S.
Officers seized and destroyed the bologna, and the driver was given a $1,000 fine.
