DETROIT — U.S. border agents say they have caught a Canadian woman and her teenage daughter trying to cross the border with $59,000 hidden in their bras.

The Detroit Free Press and the Windsor Star say a complaint was filed Tuesday in Detroit federal court against a 51-year-old woman.

The complaint says border agents detained Moura El-Asmar and her 16-year-old daughter at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel on their way to Detroit Metropolitan Airport for a flight to visit relatives in Lebanon.
