SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego Border Patrol agents seized over $600K worth of heroin on Thursday on the I-15 freeway.

Agents stopped a car near the Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 15 and conducted an immigration check on the driver - a 46-year-old woman.

During the stop, an alert from a Border Patrol K-9 prompted agents to search the vehicle. They discovered 14 vacuum-sealed bags filled with white heroin, about 32 pounds, inside the car's exhaust.

The driver was arrested and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration and the vehicle was seized by the U.S. Border Patrol. The driver faces federal drug smuggling charges.
