Nearly half a million dollars in undeclared cash is found inside an 18 wheeler.
A DPS trooper pulled the 18 wheeler over for speeding as it headed South on highway 77. After searching the trailer a man made compartment was found with $497,000 dollars and the driver and passenger declined ownership of the money, but were taken into custody for questioning.
The driver and passenger were released and the investigation into where the money was headed and where it came from is ongoing.
