GUATEMALA CITY - Security forces in Guatemala found more than 2.2 million US dollars in a hidden compartment of a van.
They discovered the cash during a traffic stop Sunday night about six miles north of Guatemala City.
The van's driver, a 48-year-old man, was arrested.
Local media said police counted the cash yesterday along the same highway where the van was stopped, which caused a traffic jam.
Authorities are investigating whether the money belongs to drug traffickers or organized crime groups operating in Guatemala.
