DEL RIO -Two people in Del Rio will face prison time for trying to smuggle more than 30 grenades into Mexico.

Prosecutors said the scheme was exposed last August, when 28-year-old Juliette Ramirez was found with a grenade in her backpack at a border crossing.

Her arrest led investigators to an apartment in Del Rio, where officers discovered 35 more grenades.

Noe Ramirez, 28, was arrested at the apartment.

Investigators said the man and woman plotted to smuggle grenades into Acuna, Mexico.
