American Carrying Over $400k Arrested in Guatemala

GUATEMALA CITY – An American woman was arrested by drug enforcement agents at Guatemala City’s La Aurora International Airport when she allegedly tried to transport nearly $420,000 in undeclared cash to Ecuador, a National Civilian Police, or PNC, spokesman told Efe.

Marie Magdalena Stahl was arrested Sunday by the DAIA drug enforcement agency, the police spokesman said.

The 29-year-old Stahl was about to board a flight to Ecuador with a stopover in Panama.

The woman was carrying three suitcases containing $415,272 in cash, as well as 20,000 quetzales (some $2,500), the PNC spokesman said.

Investigators are trying to determine where the money came from, but they suspect it is the proceeds from drug trafficking.

Stahl is being held at a jail and the money is being retained as evidence, the police spokesman said. EFE
