FORT LEE, N.J. - Two men from New York face charges after a New Jersey state trooper found more than $783,000 in their vehicle during a traffic stop.

State Police say the trooper stopped the SUV because it was driving erratically on Interstate 95 in Fort Lee.

The trooper found the money in a box and a hydraulically-operated compartment hidden in the vehicle.

Franklin Delacruz and Jose Tremillo-Carnillo of the Bronx, N.Y., are charged with money laundering and conspiracy. They're each held in the Bergen County Jail on $500,000 bail.

It's not known if the men have attorneys.

Bail seems low considering it was less money than they had with them.
$500k EACH. Probably had that much in change in the ashtray. :p

So you can get arrested just for having that much money in your car?  Stupid? Yes  Illegal? really?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it isn't against the law to have any amount of cash on your person. It isn't even against the law to travel out of the country with large amounts of cash as long as you declare it.
This is the problem with news reporting these days: there is always more to the story then is reported.

Some dumbass skels. Kinda like the ones that were caught last year transporting 100 pounds of pot from Chicago...they were pulled over for smoking weed.
Score another one for the good guy :)

Any more details on this yet? Or is it a jail-able offense to just be driving erratically with a butt-load of cash in your car?

Think about you getting pulled over on the way home from the range. Obviously, having recently fired firearms in the vehicle is a sign of recent criminal activity, right?

I know how it LOOKS, but where's the EVIDENCE?

I think the "Hidden Compartment" thing might come into play...

I understand your point, and sure they are up to no good, but that's still not illegal!

The media is out of control these days. Leaving out details to mold a story to what they want. What gave the officer the right to search the vehicle in the first place? More details would be nice.

Yeah, If I was driving around with 5-10K in cash I would have it hidden somewhere. Who would want to chance that much money being stolen.

I think there is a law on the books that carrying a certain amount of cash is illegal. The intent was to catch drug dealers and I don't believe prosecutors use it all that often.
