In San Juan–authorities confiscate hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s the largest amount of illegal cash ever reported in the city.
Police say what started as a routine traffic stop, took them by surprise. San Juan police say the suspect was first pulled over because of defective equipment on his trailer. The morning took an unexpected turn however, when a K9 agent alerted authorities to something inside. Hidden in the back of the trailer was close to $800,000, the largest amount of cash ever confiscated in San Juan. That money is now being processed by police. The driver of the vehicle, a 36 year old Mexican native, was placed under arrest. Charges are pending as the case remains under investigation. The man detained could face a judge as early as tomorrow.
