(CBS/AP) DETROIT - U.S. border agents say they caught a Canadian woman and her teenage daughter trying to cross the border with $59,000 hidden in their bras.
The Detroit Free Press and The Windsor Star say a complaint was filed Tuesday in Detroit federal court against a 51-year-old woman.
The complaint says border agents detained Moura El-Asmar and her 16-year-old daughter at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel on their way to Detroit Metropolitan Airport for a flight to visit relatives in Lebanon.
According to the complaint, "During the pat down a bulky mass was discovered on the bra. A search revealed two bags sewn into the bra lining."
Agents say they also found $15,300 in El-Asmar's purse.
The complaint says it's a crime to try to transport more than $10,000 in U.S. currency - or the equivalent - in or out of the country.
El-Asmar, who is from the Windsor, Ontario area, is charged with cash smuggling and lying to a federal agent. Her daughter isn't charged.
