SUSPECTED CARTEL CASH COURIER ARRESTED IN MISSISSIPPI WITH $375,000


The seized funds.
A drug interdiction task force in Mississippi stopped a California resident for a traffic violation on I-20, and subsequently found $375,000 secreted in the vehicle. The driver, Alexandra Arreola, 26 years old, of San Jose, was charged with money laundering. Interstate 20 ultimately end at I-10 in Kent, Texas, near the border with Mexico.

Note that the money seized was in small denomination bills, which is indicative of drug sales proceeds. Many cartel agents then swap out the twenty dollar bills in Texas for hundreds, before attempting to bulk cash smuggle them into Mexico.

The defendant.
