Woman Charged in Miami Money Laundering Case Has Charges Dismissed

March 23, 2016

A Bolivian woman bringing cash into the United States hidden inside the lining of her luggage was arrested at the Miami International Airport and charged with money laundering. The woman failed to declare the cash, as required by law prior to entering the United States. After being interviewed by U.S. Customs agents in Miami, they found over twenty-three thousand ($23,000) dollars sewn into the lining of her luggage. Federal agents placed her under arrest. DMT was able to establish to the satisfaction of the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office that the money was not illegally obtained or tainted. Once this was established, the charges were immediately dismissed and her money was returned.
