A trucker was arrested in the province of San Juan, with more than 7 million pesos and bearer checks for almost a million and a half more. He was traveling from Catamarca and was destined for the city of Mendoza. The Justice ordered the kidnapping of the money and that proceedings be carried out for possible money laundering and violation of the Criminal Tax Regime.
staff of Core Squad San Juan carried out controls on National Route No. 141, at the height of Paraje Vallecito in the department of Caucete, when they requested the arrest of a cargo transport that was heading towards the province of Mendoza. At the time of the inspection, the gendarmes found inside the driver’s cabin two nylon bags containing 7,079,900 pesos in cash and six bearer checks for a total of 1,411,537.
Faced with this situation, the Federal Court No. 2 of San Juan was informed, through the Criminal Secretariat No. 5. In this context, and knowing that the trucker could not justify the origin of the money, it was ordered that the procedure be transferred to the Gendarmerie post of San Juan Capital.
As confirmed, the transfer to the post was decreed “with the aim of guaranteeing the safety of the participants and evidence”while the Justice carried out the corresponding inquiries before AFIP-DGA.
The person involved was released subject to the cause, while all the money, checks and evidence were seized.
At the moment, the origin of the money is unknown, it was only possible to know that it came from Catamarca and that it was destined for a trucker from Mendoza.
