Mexico seizes $11.5 million hidden in strawberry truck near Sonoyta

Mexico City, Jul 14 (AFP) Mexican authorities seized USD 11.5 million in cash hidden in a truck carrying strawberries at a customs checkpoint near the US border, officials said today.

The stash was concealed in 306 packages wrapped with black plastic, at a checkpoint just south of the city of Sonoyta, Sonora.  Sonoyta is 2.5 miles south of the US border and Lukeville, Arizona.

This occurred on Sunday although it was not reported to the public until Tuesday. The discovery was made after a gamma-ray scanner found "a variation" in the cargo, said the defense ministry in a statement.

Some 30 boxes of ammunitions, in various caliber, were also found in the truck.

The statement did not say whether the truck was coming from or going to the United States. The driver was handed over to prosecutors.

Drug cartels regularly ship weapons and cash from their drug proceeds into Mexico from the United States.

    1. After about a.year and a half, el chapo is very well trained in picking up the soap, I mean his wallet, so this means these millions belong to some other billionaire drug trafficking drug lord without connections to big US money laundering banks, or...

    2. Maybe the dollar bills are "marked!" Ha! But, by whom??

  19. Chapo paying his government tax on time as usual

  21. They should take all that money and give it to the pobres in rural country. Make it rain, baby!!! Think that will ever happen???

  22. Nit picking maybe, but Sonoyta is directly on the border. The stop may have been south on Rt. 2 toward Caborca (most probable route) or 8 toward Penasco. There is frequently a military stop on 2 and lots of attention through Sonoyta with the heated up plaza there.

    Must have crossed to the West so I bet US officials are pissed they did not get to confiscate the ca$h !!

    1. The major aduana check point is just a little south of Sonyta. We have been hassled there many times, and the one south of Mazatlan. It was always some drugged out/ Drunk PGR. Hence not much tourism anymore.

  23. Most likely this cash money and ammunitions came from United States. On its way to sonora or sinaloa, switched trucks so it won't look suspicious.

  28. PRI just getting there payoff from Chapo. LOL

  29. I'm glad Chapo is back out. Now business will get back to some order. If the Mexican people were smart they'd elect him President and tell the US to F off on this war on drugs. The United States drug use has torn Mexico apart. Tell the US to fight the war on their soil.

    1. The photo is reportedly from a press conference given by SEDEN, and was published by several Mexican news outlets, although I'm not certain it's not archival. http://www.excelsior.com.mx/nacional/2015/07/14/1034625

  31. Chapo just cut some ones shipment let's see what happens next I think Los Salazar will stay with the plaza

  32. Sonoyta is a dusty old border town in the sonoran desert that has long been controlled by CDS.. CDS controls all of the border towns west of Juarez ..You never hear that this much money or this much weight is being pushed through the tamaulipas and golfos plazas.. those guys are straight trash... and As much as the cheerleaders of the linias, CDJ, and flechas hate to admit it, El Chapo controls Juarez, I wouldn't be surprised that the aztekas are busy looking for gente nueva members in Juarez not knowing that Gente Nueva is busy running their drugs underground and across the border. How is it then that most of all drug seizures in El Paso are Chapo's?

  33. dont look 15 million to me even if they were 100 dollar bills

  34. The total amount was $15.2 mil. We will be looking for the pendejos who took them and they will suffer.
