On Saturday, August 29, a K9 working with US Customs and Border Protection alerted agents to a cash stash. Officials confirmed that the K9 had detected $27 million on its way to the US Virgin Islands inside dozens of home moving containers on Tuesday. Authorities seized 34 boxes; charges for failure to declare and bulk cash smuggling were the reason for the seizure.
Customs and Border Patrol, the DEA, alongside Homeland Security Investigations and the District of Puerto Rico US Attorney’s Office are all working together for the ongoing investigation. The agencies are looking into the undeclared currency. Director of field operations in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, Gregory Alvarez, stated that they remain committed to deterring smuggling attempts throughout the Caribbean. He is working with both federal and local law enforcement on the effort.
