Customs and Border Protection's trained dog sniffs out hidden cash in car

Posted: Updated:

NOGALES, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) - A man was busted trying to smuggle $90,000 in unreported cash into Mexico from the United States.

Customs and Border Protection says 34-year-old Cesar Olea Vazquez, who is a citizen of Mexico, didn't tell officers about the illegal stacks of money he had hidden underneath his front seat.

The bust happened Tuesday at the Dennis DeConcini Port.

It wasn't until a trained dog-sniffing dog alerted officers to the money during a search at the port of entry near Nogales, Arizona.

Olea now faces bulk cash smuggling charges.
