US Agents Seize Record US$27M In Cash On Ship Bound For USVI

(AP) — Federal authorities announced Tuesday that they seized US$27 million in undeclared cash aboard a ship bound for the US Virgin Islands, the largest such seizure ever in the region.

US Customs and Border Protection said a dog inspecting cargo on Saturday aboard a ship docked in Puerto Rico alerted agents to the money found inside home moving boxes destined for St Thomas.

No one has been arrested.
