Customs inspectors were suspicious of a woman who declared several soiled baby diapers at a U.S.-Mexico border crossing.

The inspectors at the international bridge in Hidalgo moved in for a check and inside the chunky diapers they found several links of spicy pork sausage, also known as 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.
