Brownsville, Texas: A 20-Year-Old Woman Accused Of Methamphetamine Smuggling

"Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

A 20-year-old Brownsville woman remained in federal custody Monday following her Dec. 6 arrest on a methamphetamine smuggling charge.

According to a federal criminal complaint, Kailah Janelle Paz told authorities she was going to get paid for smuggling the drugs into the United States.

Paz was attempting to cross from Mexico into the U.S. on Dec. 6 via the Gateway International Bridge in Brownsville, the compliant stated. Paz, who was driving a 2021 Ford Fiesta, was referred to a U.S. Custom and Border Protection secondary inspection area for further inspection.

As CBP officers inspected the car with the aid of a canine unit, they discovered “a non-factory compartment located under the front, passenger side floorboard,” the complaint states. A further search of the vehicle led to the discovery of nine bundles of methamphetamine weighing 20.01 pounds, authorities alleged.

The estimated street value of the narcotics from the seizure is about $400,355.

During a post-Miranda interview, authorities alleged that Paz admitted to “knowledge in conspiring with known and unknown individuals to possess with intent to distribute drugs in exchange for monetary compensation.”

Paz made her first court appearance on Dec. 7 before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald G. Morgan, who ordered she be held without bond. Her next hearing is scheduled for Dec. 27.

“Our officers continue to maintain laser focus in their efforts to keep our borders secure, and their hard work and dedication to the CBP mission contributed to making this drug seizure,” said Port Director Tater Ortiz, Brownsville Port of Entry.

    1. Couldn’t have been much if she’s driving around in a 2021 Ford Fiesta. Talk about a broke ass. Lol.

      Using a fiesta to smuggle doesn't necessarily mean she's broke. At 20 tears old, if she would've had an expensive luxury car, it would raise questions and using it to smuggle would be very foolish. The point is blending in not standing out and a Fiesta is a better choice for her.

      The car could also not even be hers, maybe it was provided, and she just had to pick it up, drive it across, and drop it off with the drugs.

  6. As they were celebrating their 20 lb drug seizure 200 lbs was crossing over 2 stalls down while 2000 lbs was crossing over thank you Nafta in the high roller lanes that have no inspections what so ever its a great system and everyone gets to feel like somethings being done with all the lazer focus bullshit ! And so the war on the poor(drug war) keeps grinding with ms.Paz as its latest casualty . My guess is she was making 1-250 usd per lb .

  7. 400k for 20 pounds these guys are smoking rock lmao. They always inflate the price even if they calculate based on gram price all the way up thats unreal. Get you a pound in LA right now for about 1k max 1.4k but some fire. Texas canr be that much higher considering its a border town and has major hubs for multiple cartels. Even Gallito from CT has a warehouse in Texas and i personally know a nephew of sr. Oceguera that bounces back from my hometown/area to Texas where his entire family distribute major weight out of

    20 Ps pf Crystal worth 400k lmao sure bob
