A Texas man and woman are accused of money laundering and trying to smuggle thousands of dollars into Mexico after deputies said they found cash bundled in aluminum foil to look like tamales or tacos, KIII-TV reported.

Lori Salazar, 54, and her son, Daniel Salazar, 34, both of Houston, were stopped Late Monday in Riviera, KTRK reported. After Kleberg County deputies observed the pair "acting strange," authorities searched their minivan and found $211,000 contained in tamale wrappers, the television station reported.
