      Authorities are investigating how more than $419,000 dollars in cash ended up inside an 18-wheeler.

      Brownsville police report that the seizure was made by a K-9 officer on this past Friday.

      Investigators told Action 4 News that the officer saw the 18-wheeler deviate from its route.

      The truck driver appeared nervous and consented to let the K-9 officer search the semi-truck.

      The K-9 detected an unusual odor near the driver TMs side fuel tank.

      Authorities found several packages with $419,755 dollars of cash inside.

      No arrests were made but Brownsville police said an investigation continues.
