Teacher Falls Victim to New Drug Smuggling Scheme

One minute she was a run-of-the-mill teacher. The  next minute she was wanted for drug smuggling.  A popular El Paso teacher has been released from a  Mexican jail after becoming the high-profile victim of a drug-smuggling scheme  that uses unsuspecting commuters to move marijuana across the border.

Ana Isela Martínez Amaya had been jailed in Ciduad  Juarez since May. She was released late Sunday after the Mexican attorney  general’s office said they confirmed she didn’t know 88 pounds of marijuana had  been hidden in her trunk.  The FBI believes that during the past year traffickers have used the scheme to smuggle  hundreds of pounds of marijuana each week into the U.S.  Martínez is a Mexican citizen who legally teaches in  the U.S. at an elementary school. Supporters had rallied and petitioned for her  release since the 35-year-old was arrested while headed to work in El Paso.
