Santo Domingo.- Antinarcotics (DNCD) agents and Justice Ministry officials in cooperation with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) arrested a man with 499,440 dollars in cash, inside a Porsche Cayenne SUV.

“Hard intelligence and investigation preceded the subject’s arrest, who was carrying the high amount of dollars inside two packages,” the DNCD said in a statement, adding that several credit and debit cards, two cell phones, a Glock pistol, a clip, and ammo were also seized.

In addition, several deposit receipts for tens of thousands of dollars and withdrawals of hundreds of thousands of Dominican pesos in various banks.
