Man with $153,000 in cash arrested at Nashville airport

Everything becomes tainted when a person's motives are starting to get a little suspicious. This was the case of 33-year old Conor Guckian who was arrested in Nashville on Monday.

According to the police affidavit, Guckian paid $20,000 in cash to charter a private plane from Nashville to California.

Smelling something fishy in Guckian, the staff then alerted the police in the airport, warning them about a suspicious individual using an unusually large amount of money to rent a plane to California. A K-9 unit immediately responded and waited for Guckian to arrive at the airport. Upon arriving, dogs sniffed his suitcase and detected a familiar odor associated with drugs on bundles of money, reportedly worth $153,000.

A second dog confirmed the narcotic odor on the cash, which were divided into 32 bundles and wrapped with rubber bands.

Police said that the way in which the money was tied is consistent to that of drug proceeds. When asked about his trip, Guckian said that he leased the plane because it was safer to transport the cash. He also told police that he visited a friend in Nashville, but later admitted that he was only there because of the cheaper flights.

Police later discovered that the suspect was previously arrested for drug trafficking in New York.

Guckian reportedly structured his bank accounts to contain balances of not more than $10,000 to avoid government detection. His whereabouts are still unknown, police said.

Guckian is currently in jail with a $10,000 bond.
