A Canadian woman tried to get into the United States with 13 grams of marijuana hidden inside her.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection office in Warroad, Minnesota, stopped the 26-year-old woman from Big Island, Ontario, on Sunday as she was traveling with two other Canadians, a news release says.

At the Warroad border crossing, customs officials picked their vehicle for further inspection, at which point officers "detected the strong odor of marijuana in the vehicle," the release says. During the inspection, the woman admitted she was trying to smuggle marijuana over the border and it was hidden in a body cavity.

She was taken to a local medical facility, where during an exam 13 grams of marijuana was discovered. The news release doesn't say where exactly it was hidden.

“This seizure illustrates the great lengths that people will go through in an attempt to import contraband into the United States undetected,” Pembina Area Port Director Jason Schmelz said in the release.

Officials seized the drugs and the woman was given a citation by the Roseau County Sheriff's Office.
