Customs nabs Canadian who allegedly smuggled 295,000 euros

Santo Domingo. – The Customs Agency on Friday accused Canadian citizen Christopher Peter Jetter with smuggling 295,000 euros into the country at Punta Cana International Airport, and was charged in the La Altagracia Province Office of the Prosecutor.

Customs spokesperson Abinader Fortunato said the confiscation was the result of a joint operation by Customs, military and Airport Security agents. "Dominican authorities not only proceeded to seize the money, but also investigate the Canadian citizen as to the source of the millions of pesos."

Jetter’s arrest at Punta Cana’s airport came after he arrived on a flight from Paris, carrying the cash distributed in small envelopes in various compartments of a suitcase.
