A woman landed herself in custody, along with six bags full of marijuana, after her GPS gave her bad directions in southern Manitoba.

The Ontario woman was travelling from British Columbia to Ontario last month when she inadvertently followed GPS directions to the Emerson border port.

When the woman asked border officers for directions to Ontario, the officers decided to search her vehicle.

According to Canadian Border Services Agency officials, they found six Ziploc bags filled with marijuana in the vehicle.

Officials said officers seized 1,500 grams of marijuana, slapped a $6,000 fine on the woman and handed her over to RCMP.

RCMP then took custody of the woman.
