The officers were working outgoing traffic at Los Indio International Bridge near Harlingen when they stopped a San Benito man.
In his car, officers found $152,000 of cash in ten packages hidden inside the car.
“This southbound interception of bulk currency is a direct result of the continuous enforcement operations our officers and agents perform on a daily basis,” said Michael Freeman, CBP Port Director in Brownsville.
CBP officers seized the currency and the vehicle. The case was turned over to ICE.
