Two Women Arrested with Large Sum of Money

Posted: Updated:

Two South Texas women were arrested this week after they were found in possession of a large sum of money.

Katherine Hernandez, 19, and Carolyn Villareal, 34, were taken into custody on Tuesday following a Department of Public Safety traffic stop in Kleberg County.

It was just after noon when a state trooper noticed the driver didn't observe the move-over law along Highway 77. The trooper pulled the vehicle over, and after a search of the suspects, officers found more than $170,000 taped to their body.

The pair was arrested and taken to the Kleberg County Jail.
