According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, CBP officers at the Juarez-Lincoln Bridge seized approximately $1.0 million in unreported currency hidden inside a passenger vehicle during an outbound examination.
A 2010 Nissan Maxima was driven by a female U.S. Citizen and selected for examination. CBP officers initially used a non-intrusive imaging system scan followed up by a physical examination of the vehicle where they found 53 bundles containing a total of $988,550 in unreported currency within the vehicle.
CBP officers seized the currency and arrested the driver then turned the case over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations for further investigation.
