Traffic Stop Results in Duo Facing Laundering Charges:
Two men charged in Perry after nearly $60,000 was found in search of car

A traffic stop earlier in the month had led to money laundering charges against two men from Puerto Rico who were found nearly $60,000 in cash, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

Deputies stopped a car for running a red light on Route 20A on March 10.

Deputies interviewed two men in the car, Xiomara I. Morales-Suarez, 27, and Alexis Velazquez-Mendez, 40, who they believed were involved in multi-state criminal activity.

Genesee County’s K9 unit was called and a searched found nearly $60,000 hidden in the car, cash that was wrapped and sealed in “denominations consistent with illicit funds,” deputies said.

Both men were charged with fourth-degree money laundering, a class E felony punishable by up to four years in prison.

The men were issued appearance tickets to return to court Wednesday.
