PHOENIX - The FBI in Phoenix says a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer is accused of money laundering.
Authorities on Friday announced the arrest of 59-year-old Lauro Tobias by the FBI's Southern Arizona Corruption Task Force.
FBI officials say Tobias was taken into custody without incident Thursday on a federal complaint.
The complaint alleges that Tobias transported a bag containing a large amount of cash he believed to be the proceeds from a narcotics sale from Las Vegas to Phoenix last Aug. 31.
Other details of the case weren't immediately released.
Authorities didn't immediately know if Tobias has a lawyer yet.
