    The amount found may total $1 million.

    Workers fixing broken pipes in an El Paso home after a cold snap came upon some cool cash.

    The El Paso Times reported Thursday that the total recovered could be nearly $1 million.

    The Drug Enforcement Administration referred questions to El Paso police.

    Police spokesman Darrel Petry on Wednesday only confirmed a "large sum" of money was found in the wall of a condominium. Further details on the discovered cash were not immediately released.

    El Paso County District Attorney Jaime Esparza says the case is under investigation.
