Ciudad Juárez, Mexico: An American Attempts to Smuggle Over 100K into Juárez


Video translation is as follows:
Edgar: Another 19 year old was detained at the border. He came to Juárez with more than 100,000 dollars in cash. The money was attached to his body. Go ahead with the details Everardo.

Everardo: And so it goes Edgar. They arrested an American who tried to cross more than $ 100,000 to Ciudad Juárez. This is a 19-year-old man who was carrying the money strapped to his body when he was detected at the Ysleta-Zaragoza international bridge.

The events were recorded this Tuesday at 12:35 noon ater CBP officers conducted an inspection at the border crossing exit area. This incident justly triggered the seizure of money which represents a heavy blow to organized crime.


The young man arrived and was selected for a second inspection. Furthermore he was escorted to an internal area where the officers discovered the bundles of cash strapped to his body. Consequently the authorities seized a total of 102 thousand dollars.

And the case is still under investigation. Likewise, the customs and border office emphasizes that it’s working to stop the illegal movement of firearms, ammunition, and undeclared currency.

Edgar: The question now is: Was this a coincidence or were they tipped off? Who knew that he had 102 thousand dollars in cash there? Thanks for your report Everardo.

  1. Interesting. Are U.S. customs agents now inspecting pedestrian leaving the country? I've never encountered that when I walk back into Mexico. Perhaps the suspicions that he was tipped off are real. Thanks, Sol!

    1. They always have. They just don’t have the manpower to inspect every single vehicle or pedestrian crossing into Mexico. They prioritize incoming traffic. On the area that I cross, some days they do have officers and some days they don’t.

    2. I've seen them inspect drivers heading back to Mexico, but I've absolutely never encountered a U.S. inspection while walking back in the past twenty years. I don't live in a very busy border like Ciudad Juárez's so maybe that's why. Cheers.

  2. they got him with 100k but a car passed at the same time with over 2 million in drugs, it's a tactic used by drug smugglers. Hes young he can do 5+ years without a problem.

  3. I think he was being watched by authorities in the states, The police watch suspected drug areas and loads over months at a time and predict cash runs. Thats why he was caught

  4. MX your thought of presumption seems correct. Pedestrians walking into Mexico rarely get intercepted for inspection.
    Definitely more to the story.

  5. Yes , people get checked leaving. Not all but yes. I've been checked several times crossing in a bus. Ran my passport Everytime. And I'm as gabacho as they come.

    2. As a pedestrian heading back to Mexico? You would think they would have dogs and CBP agents for those heading north only. Curious to your response because in the Tamaulipas border crossings I regularly cross I've never seen U.S. agents inspecting those heading south (as pedestrians).

  8. Automobiles entering México at garita 2 which is the main crossing are now thoroughly vetted by American agents in booths 300 yards before Mexican auana
    This is 24/7/365. There are remotely raised tire spikes to prevent running the inspection. This is eyeball grade info and they are looking for money and guns. But will detain stolen cars and drugged drunk drivers. They will not detain but report to the IRS anyone carrying 5.000 dollars or more. Not sure about Mexicanos.

  9. They have two agents either at the top of the bridge or at the bottom in their patrol SUV, sometimes on their computers. You dont think they have any devises that help detect such large amounts? The amount of people that get stopped coming into Mexico is an extremely small amount. More than a coincidence... I'd get a friend and do ten trips of 5k each lol.

  14. You all got it wrong. He was caught going to El Paso, which begs the question : why move money north?
