A Seminole woman gets caught with a wad of cash trying to cross the border in El Paso.
The money was hidden inside a slow cooker hidden under a mattress.
Nearly $144,000 was wrapped up in foil and put in zip lock bags.
Customs and border agents arrested 45 year old Margaretha Reimer- Giesbrecht from Seminole.
Her car was picked for a random check and that's when agents found the dough.
It's not illegal to carry that much money across the border but by law, you have to declare anything $10,000 or higher.
Agents seized Giesbrecht's car and the cash.
She remains in the El Paso jail.
No bond has been set.
