Mexican Authorities Find Nearly $1 Million in Cash Hidden on Bus

MEXICO CITY – The Mexican military said Tuesday that marines manning a highway checkpoint in the northern state of Tamaulipas discovered nearly $1 million in cash hidden aboard a bus.

The seizure was made Sunday during an inspection of a bus headed south from Reynosa, just across the border from McAllen, Texas, to the central Mexican city of Puebla.

After noticing “irregularities in the internal structure of the bus,” the marines brought in sniffer dogs that led them to 43 plastic packages containing a total of $981,140, the navy said in a statement.

Once the cash was discovered, the bus driver and his assistant admitted that they had been paid to deliver the money to Puebla.

The marines turned over the suspects, the cash and the bus to the Attorney General’s Office.

Mexico’s drug cartels have taken to using intercity buses to smuggle their product to the US border and carry the proceeds from sales.
