Border officers say they found nearly $11,000 stuffed into the shoes of a Phoenix man trying to walk into Mexico at the Lukeville port of entry.

The 22-year-old man was arrested Wednesday when U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers searched him and found $10,744 stuffed into his sneakers.

The cash was seized and the man arrested and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
