Federal authorities say a Mexican man is in custody for allegedly trying to smuggle nearly $107,000 in undeclared cash across the southern Arizona border.
They say 54-year-old Gamaliel Gonzales De Dios, of Nayarit, Mexico, was arrested Friday in Nogales near the Dennis DeConcini Port.
Customs and Border Protection officers and Border Patrol agents conducting outbound inspections selected Gonzales De Dios for a secondary inspection after he declared $1,000 in U.S. currency.
They say he actually was carrying almost $1,900 in cash and 23 packages containing an additional $105,000 was found concealed in a cooler Gonzales De Dios was carrying.
The cash was processed for seizure and Gonzales De Dios was referred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations.
Authorities didn't immediately know Monday if he has an attorney.
