Agents at the South Texas border have seized nearly $482,000 hidden in a vehicle attempting to enter Mexico.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers say a 43-year-old man from Laredo has been taken into custody in the undeclared currency investigation.
Authorities at the Laredo Port of Entry say the cash was confiscated Monday from a pickup truck at the Lincoln-Juarez Bridge.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Investigators didn't immediately say where the bundles of money were found in the vehicle or release further details on the driver.
Any cash adding up to $10,000 or more must be declared at the U.S. border to make sure the funds are not tied to criminal activity.
