More than $100K, child porn found in secret compartment during Dunn traffic stop

Posted July 27

— More than $100,000 in cash was found in a secret compartment of a car during a Tuesday traffic stop near Dunn.

According to the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy stopped a 2005 Lexus on Chicken Farm Road and a search of the car found $106,850 in cash hidden inside.

A continued search revealed that David Cierra Orozco, 27, of Doraville, Ga. was in possession of $4,259. An additional $143 was found in other locations throughout the car, authorities said.

Major Jeff Huber with the Sheriff’s office said SD cards were also found inside the car and at least one contained child pornography.

Orozco was charged with driving without a license, but additional charges are expected.

He was being held under $10,000 and is an ICE detainee, authorities said.

The money found inside the car was taken to a local bank and exchanged for a cashier’s check made out to the U.S. Marshal Service, authorities said.

    He is just suspected of being here illegally. Once ICE determines he is, in fact, here illegally, then he can called an illegal alien.

    Is it a crime to carry cash in your car or is the crime being illegal and driving without a license? He could have easily made his own bail with that cash.

    WRAL apparently can't bring themselves to call this guy an illegal immigrant in the article headline.
