MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - An illegal alien stopped on southbound Interstate 81 near Martinsburg Sunday afternoon had about $200,000 in cash sewn into his shirt, police said.
A West Virginia State Police trooper became suspicious when he found several bulges in a man's shirt during a pat-down search of a pickup truck driver shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday, said state police Sgt. Deke Walker.
Police stopped Jesus Macias, 22, of Newburgh, N.Y., near the Queen Street exit for driving his 1987 Ford pickup too closely to another vehicle.
A background check revealed Macias is an illegal alien -although his nationality is not known - while a physical search of Macias turned up the money, Walker alleged.
