SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Federal authorities have seized $1.35 million in cash hidden inside a car aboard a cargo ship that arrived from Philadelphia.

A statement issued Friday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said agents discovered the money hidden within the door panels of a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee during an inspection of a cargo ship named "The Queen."

The agency said the investigation into Thursday's seizure is ongoing.

No further details were available.

ICE spokesman Ivan Ortiz did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
