Arrested with $153,000, a man is suspected of money laundering by Nashville airport police. Conor Guckian, 33, was arrested and is being held on $10,000 bond. According to The Christian Science Monitor on Jan. 15, Guckian used $20,000 cash to charter a private plane from Nashville to California.

...(He) was arrested on money laundering charges after an airport police dog smelled narcotics on $153,000 stuffed into his suitcase, according to a police affidavit released Tuesday.

Guckian was arrested with $153,000 that was coated with a drug odor according to two different K-9 dogs. The cash was also wrapped with rubber bands in 32 bundles in a manner that is consistent with drug proceeds.

When questioned, the man arrested with $153,000 answered in a very suspicious way. First he claimed that he was flying to California to buy gold. Then he said that he was careful not to show balances over $10,000 in any of his bank accounts to avoid government detection. And finally he admitted to have been previously arrested in New York for cocaine possession.
