MARICOPA, AZ (AP) -

A woman from Mexico has been arrested after Pinal County authorities found 11 immigrants believed to be in the country illegally in her vehicle.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that 29-year-old Janette Salido-Hernandez was also carrying more than 45 pounds of marijuana in her Ford Explorer when she was stopped near Maricopa on Friday.

Sheriff Paul Babeu says Salido-Hernandez claimed she didn't know the marijuana was in her car and that she had stopped to try to help the stranded group.

However, according to Babeu, Salido-Hernandez accepted $300 to take them to Phoenix.

Salido-Hernandez, who only had a Mexico driver's license, was booked on drug-related charges and turned over Monday to U.S. Border Patrol.

The 11 passengers were also transferred to border officials for processing.
