Cancun, Q.R. — Federal police at the Cancun International Airport say that a Romanian woman has been arrested after she was discovered hiding a large sum of cash on her person.
The arrest came after police offered to help the woman who appeared to have trouble walking. When attempting to assist her, the woman evaded all questions, which is when police became suspicious.
The woman was taken for inspection, which is when federal police reported finding just over 80,000 Bajan dollars in Barbados currency or approximately 767,000 Mexican peso hidden in the clothing she was wearing.
The arrest took place at Terminal 2 of the Cancun International Airport. The Romanian woman said she entered Mexico from Panama.
The woman, along with her cash, was handed over to Agent of the Federal Public Ministry to continue with the corresponding inquiries.
