Lubbock Jury Indicts Man For Smuggling Cash

A federal grand jury in Lubbock has indicted a man for conspiracy and attempt to commit bulk cash smuggling.

36-year-old Oscar Escobar of Rocksprings, Texas was arrested after a routine traffic stop revealed almost $700,000 stashed in his truck.

The cash was intended to eventually be smuggled into Acuna, Mexico.

He faces up to ten years in prison and $500,000 in fines.

He would also have to forfeit the smuggled funds to the federal government.
