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.
