Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat Reforma
North Carolina agents, alerted by a police dog, stopped a cargo truck that was heading to Mexico with barrels carrying 3 million dollars.
The cargo truck with a trailer carried barrels of pork, while the money was wrapped in plastic, the Cleveland County Police Station said on its Facebook page.
It is believed that the money was a product of drug sales in the region, Commissioner Alan Norman said Tuesday.
“It is one of the biggest seizures of money in Cleveland County history,” Norman told Shelby Star.
The police said the Justice Department was asked to assist with the investigation.
