Irving Man Arrested on Money Laundering Charges in Sulphur Springs

Pablo Hernain Perez-Argueta, 28, of Irving found himself in hot water after being arrested on charges of money laundering. The arrest occurred on Friday morning, February 23rd, following a routine traffic stop on IH 30 westbound near between Greenville and Sulphur Springs

According to reports, DPS Trooper Johnson and Trooper Rodriguez noticed a black Nissan Pathfinder parked on the shoulder of the highway. Approaching the vehicle to offer assistance, the troopers identified Argueta as the driver and sole occupant. Argueta was found to be driving without a valid license.

During their interaction with Argueta, the troopers observed signs of nervousness. When Argueta attempted to show them his passport from the center console, a significant amount of cash caught their attention, leading to suspicions.

Despite Argueta's admission of being aware of the cash, he refused consent to search the vehicle. Authorities called in a DPS K9 unit, which signaled something suspicious. Subsequent searches revealed a substantial sum of U.S. currency in the console, prompting further investigation.

Following a statement at the DPS office in Sulphur Springs, TX, it was determined that the money Argueta possessed was suspected to be linked to illegal activities. As a result, he was arrested and transported to Hopkins County Jail, facing charges of MONEY LAUNDERING >=$30K<$150K.
