Agents in Puerto Rico seize $200K from car roof

Federal agents in Puerto Rico have seized more than $200,000 in cash hidden in the roof of a car bound for the Dominican Republic.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the money was discovered during an X-ray inspection as the car boarded the Chihuahua Star ferry.

The agency said in a statement Thursday that the driver declared only $4,500 in cash.

The money was seized over the weekend.

Three other similar seizures were reported earlier this year. In February, federal agents detained two men in a taxi carrying $580,000 in suitcases. A week later, police found $670,000 stuffed inside beer boxes during a routine traffic stop. In late January, police stopped a man with more than $1 million in his truck.
