NOGALES, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a man who tried to hide $420,000 currency in his vehicle while crossing into Mexico through the Port of Nogales.

Agents arrested Victor Dariel Peralta-Cohen, 33, who did not report the money, which was stashed under his car's seats and in the trunk, and processed the car and cash for seizure.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations division is now investigating Peralta-Cohen.
