McALLEN, Texas (AP) - Customs inspectors scored the makings of a
barbecue when a 21-year-old South Texas woman declared several
soiled baby diapers at a U.S.-Mexico border crossing.

The inspectors with U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the
international bridge in Hidalgo weren't buying the story.
Suspicious of the chunky diapers, they found inside several links
of spicy pork sausage, called chorizo. A U.S. Customs statement
says the diapers had been folded to look soiled.

The Mission resident was fined $300 and her chorizo was
confiscated after the Friday night incident. Her identity hasn't
been released.
