An Argentine passenger was detained at the Corrientes International Airport when she tried to travel to Buenos Aires

with $ 430,000 that she could not justify where she

came from.

The Airport Security Police detected the woman before boarding the plane during the preventive controls carried out on the passengers close to boarding the flight No. 5151 of the Flybondi company,

bound for the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires

.

Through the X-ray scanners, the officers observed elements that could be tickets stored in a carry-on type of hand luggage and inside a backpack, for which they asked the owner

to display the contents.

The PSA delayed a passenger trying to travel with $ 430,000.

It was there that inside they found the enormous sum of dollars.

Asked about the origin, the woman said that it

was money from her savings

, that she was transporting it to buy a property and

that she did not have any type of documentation.

Given this, by court order, the money and cell phone were withheld while the person

was released

subject to the cause.

Moving money within the country is not a crime, but the authorities demand the justification of those goods.

If the bearer cannot explain the origin of the funds

, a complaint is made for alleged money laundering

.


Coins by the millions


Last Wednesday a 53-year-old man was delayed at Jorge Newbery Airport just as he was about to board a plane bound for Mendoza.

The Airport Security Police asked him to open his suitcase and there they found an opulent surprise: he

had gold coins valued at more than 23 million pesos.

A man arrived at Aeroparque with a fortune in more than 100 gold coins, which he could not justify.

The detection occurred during the preventive controls carried out on the passengers close to boarding the flight No. 5050 of the Flybondi company, bound

for the city of Mendoza

.

Through the X-ray scanners, the troops noticed an enormous density of objects.

Surprised, they asked him to show them the inside of the suitcase and there they found the hidden treasure

: he carried 87 Chilean gold coins

;

$ 17,800;

158,900 pesos and 8,000 Chilean pesos.

Part of the coins that the passenger transferred in Aeroparque.

But the only fortune there was not hiding.

In his backpack they discovered

another 20 gold coins

, accounting for a total of 107.

According to official information, it is estimated that each piece is valued at approximately 220,000 pesos, so it would be transporting gold

worth 23,540,000 pesos

.

What ended up convincing the police that it was a suspicious case was that when they asked the man for some documentation to support the enormous amount of money, he only provided an image of a

bill of sale in which information was missing.

The owner of the gold explained that the fortune he transferred was the

product of the sale of a vehicle

.
