California:
$3 million in cash seized in car near U.S.-Mexico border
The Border Patrol says it has arrested two men they believe tried to smuggle $3 million in cash into Mexico from California.

The agency says its agents tracked and stopped a Kia Forte in Escondido on Tuesday and found nearly $34,000 stashed in the car's center console.

Authorities say another car sped off as the first vehicle was stopped but it was later found abandoned nearby.

That car, a Volkswagen Passat, had more than $3 million packed in boxes in the trunk.

The driver was found hiding in some brush.

Both men - one a U.S. citizen and the other from Mexico - were arrested on suspicion of currency smuggling.
