Man arrested with $1.2 million hidden in trailer

A 51 year old man, Roman M. Sanchez was driving with a trailer in tow at about 6:45 a.m. Monday in Hidalgo County, just north of the Mexican border, when he was pulled over by a Texas Highway Patrol trooper for a routine traffic violation.
However, when the trooper inspected the trailer which Sanchez allegedly was towing, he discovered 12 hidden bundles of cash, totaling $1,239,755.
Sanchez couldn't satisfactorily explain where he got the money from and was subsequently arrested and charged with federal money laundering and taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service.
