NEWS / CBP Southbound Operations Seize Nearly $27,000


Douglas, Ariz. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers stopped an illegal exportation of more than $27,000 while screening traffic during southbound operations.


On October 26 at about 12:30 p.m., CBP officers were screening traffic going into Mexico as part of a southbound operation. The officers selected a vehicle being driven by a 24-year-old woman from Douglas, Ariz. Further inspection revealed that the woman was attempting to smuggle more than $27,000 out of U.S. The CBP officers found the illegal currency concealed on the women’s waist band.


“It is not illegal to transport money in or out the country,” said Margaret Baldenegro, director of Special Operations at the Douglas port of entry,” we make sure that each individual has every opportunity to declare that which they are importing or exporting; failure to do so can have severe consequences.


Before traveling abroad, each individual should refer to the CBP Web site in order to understand exactly what is expected of them as they exit or enter the United Sates. Laundering schemes are not just a matter revenue manipulation but a serious threat to global stability. Customs and Border Protection is very committed in strengthening our National Security.

CBP officers seized the illegal currency. The woman was turned over to the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement for further investigation and prosecution.
