San Diego: 3 Million in transit to Tijuana seized

3 Million seized in San Diego

Two discreet, ordinary vehicles drive in tandem through Escondido county, a city outside of central San Diego, known for crystal meth and heroin trafficking, the Passat and the Kia could have contained any average person, a weary commute home from work, another day having passed by. 

Border Patrol agents followed the two cars off the Interstate 15, southbound, and into residential Escondido, where agents pulled over the Kia, while the Passat drove off.  Inside the Kia, driven by a 53 year old American citizen, agents discovered 33, 880 in U.S currency, wrapped and stacked, and concealed in cardboard boxes.  

Other agents covered the area and found the Passat, on Bittersweet Street, it's driver, a 41 year old Mexican citizen,  hiding in some bushes nearby.  Inside his trunk was just over 3 million, wrapped and stacked, concealed in boxes.   The money was in different denominations, all representative stacked and packaged, including $1's, $5's, and $20's.  

A Border Patrol separately declared it the largest cash seizure in San Diego County, by Border Patrol operation.  The suspects were turned over to Homeland Security Investigations, likely building a larger case, the 3 million being just one piece of a picture. HSI agents in Eastlake, San Diego, an enclave of Mexican families from Tijuana, recently shot and killed a suspect in a trafficking undercover op gone wrong. 

The men were charged with bulk cash smuggling.  Who are these two?  Who has to make that call and say 'We lost them'?  The money is very likely brought down from Los Angeles/Orange County stash houses, to be transported in Tijuana.  The smaller bills indicate some of the product was distributed at retail, and maybe the suppliers were paid quickly in smaller bills, rather then waiting to change over into larger bills.  

In May of this year, multiple Federal agencies in a task force, descended upon a house a few blocks from Disneyland, where 2.3 million in suspected drug proceeds was seized.  No arrests were made at that time, but investigators linked the money to members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

    4. No. This only means that cartels are not trusting anybody in the USA with their money. It's going back just how they got it. It will turn into 100's in Mexico, if they're smart and organized, but by the look of those boxes with money in the trunk of a Passat... son una bola de nacos chuntaros y los agarraron por pendejos. que bueno.

  9. These two drivers and possibly their families, will end up paying for the loss of the money with their lives. It would be interesting to learn why Border Patrol was following them to begin with.

    1. I've heard that the DEA isn't very good about coming thru with big payouts. Even if they did come thru, word would get out, and those cashing in would be dead. It's a messed up situation. They know you can't do much complaining about pay outs because you're still gonna need their protection after you rat out.

      Delete
    2. They obviously can announce that, as it requires snitching to collect that money. Money that you won't be able to enjoy if you're always watching your back

      Delete
    3. The DEA usually pays with impunity, after they te cogen, they give you a deal, and you will happily oblige, aND you get green card and refugee status for your family, cash rewards are like the lottery, 90% taxes and the rest a little payment a year for ten years, snitching is the job to get, make your own money and be untouchable.

      Delete
    4. If they have collected I'm sure it's best 2 stay mum about it. Snitches don't have a long life expectancy. Look at lottery winners who have been murdered because of their sudden fortunes. - El Sol Perdido

    7. I have heard of and seen "contract operatives" . I was given some information on a contractor . It blew me away . He seemed solid as a rock until I saw the big picture . Knew of a couple others but was in hindsight . One was a 2 bit snitch I think , if he wasn't carrying a badge . Made buys of any size . Many in the area plead out but some didn't . When he disappeared a lot of charges were dropped . The other 2 were in it for the big. It is illegal for a cop to sell you dope and bust you . A contract operative can. One I knew the details on always wanted to sell big dope . Once he even came up with a load out of Alaska . 25% went to him after indictment and 25% of the civil forfeitures after any asset auctions .
      Probably dead now . He was so good he could also get by in the very small town he grew up. Bet he is dead now.

  20. So what can they charge these two persons with, what crime? The money was still in the USA about 50 miles north of the international border. It had not been smuggled out or even near Mexico yet.

  21. dea just taxing the shit out of them and letting them continue asnormal !!

  22. Illegal ? Sure its illegal . Did anybody file taxes on this money ? Shit there 5o ways they can be charged ? You cant earn money in the USA without reporting it . You sure as hell cant take large sums out of the country without it going through proper channels . Anytime anybody is caught hauling that much cash it will be confiscated and seized until somebody can put legal claim to it. That wont happen . I bet there enough circumstantial evidence to charge them . Shit you get caught with a baggy with a little pot in it , its simple possession . Same amount of pot but split into 8 baggies . Intent to distribute .
