Albert Amaya Jr., 29, of Red Oak and Cesar Alejandro Amaya, 25, of Dallas were arrested for money laundering yesterday. Deputies made contact with the pair and gained consent from Albert Amaya to search his bags. Deputies located a large sum of US currency inside of the bag. Albert Amaya Jr. claimed the money belonged to him. The large sum of money was packaged in the same way that narcotic traffickers package their money. Communications advised deputies of an active warrant for Cesar Amayo for violation of probation out of Dallas County. Deputies detained the pair and transported them to the Hopkins County jail. A K-9 conducted an open air search at the jail and alerted on the currency.
