An Arizona woman is headed home after her release from a Mexican jail, where she was held on a drug charge.

Yanira Maldonado of Goodyear walked out of the jail late Thursday night, after court officials reviewed security footage that showed her and her husband boarding a bus in Mexico with only blankets, bottles of water and her purse in hand.

Maldonado hugged her husband Gary and was greeted by well-wishers after she emerged.

She was arrested last week after officers found nearly 12 pounds of marijuana under her seat on the bus traveling from Mexico to Arizona.
