Columbus, N.M. -- U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Southern New Mexico seized more than 5 pounds of marijuana hidden in a backpack carried by a 14-year-old girl who walked across the border from Mexico.

The discovery was made last month in Columbus.

The girl, a United States citizen from Surprise, Ariz., was selected for a secondary exam. While searching the backpack, officers found five blocks of marijuana.

The girl was remanded to a border crimes task force.

Her identity is not being disclosed because she is a juvenile.
