60K stuffed in bras – An interesting story here as a 51 year old woman and her teenage daughter have been alleged by USA border guards to be smuggling almost $60k cdn to the USA en route to a flight to Lebanon, much of that cash was found stashed in their bras!
The two women were detained at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel border with officers wanting to verify the cash they were carrying. The 51 year old lady sais she was carrying $3,300, you can enter with up to $10k without disclosure.
After a full person and vehicle search her purse ended up having approx $15,000 Cdn and $300 US but it was the bulky packets in her bra that raised suspicion. Three packets had $10,000 and one had $9,000! Then her daughter had two packets with $20k total!
She allegedly told the officials it was there so it wasn’t stolen but also in court docs said that she didn’t want the two men she was traveling with to know, they said they had no knowledge of the cash.
The cash was said to have come from disability cheques and a paper round and money her daughter earned from baby sitting. They were en route for a flight to lebanon.
More details can be found on CBC.
I don’t know much about these people but you must admit there is so intrigue! Where did all that cash come from, is there any truth about not wanting the men to know and are there any other interesting details?
