TUCSON, AZ (CBS5) -

Federal officials working in the Tucson area found $13,000 worth of methamphetamine hidden under the lining of a baby's car seat.

U.S. Border Patrol agents conducted an inspection of a passenger shuttle van on May 6 at the Interstate 19 checkpoint.

Agents found the package of contraband concealed under the lining of a baby's car seat.

The passenger responsible was arrested on charges of narcotic smuggling.

Over the past week, agents working in southern Arizona seized more than $1 million worth of drugs.

They also made 20 arrests.

In another case, agents found nearly 100 wrapped bricks of marijuana hidden in the cabin and door panels of the sedan they were driving near Tombstone.

Two U.S. citizens were arrested.
