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.

Agents found $15,300 in El-Asmar's purse. A pat down found "a bulky mass" in her bra that led to the pair's hidden cash.

The Windsor-area woman is charged with cash smuggling and lying to a federal agent. Her daughter isn't charged.

A message seeking comment was left for a possible relative in Windsor.

That's a pretty expensive breast enhancement!

Great clip art, or is this from someone's artistic interpretation of "Fifty Shades of Gray"? Sometimes less IS more.

Wow, $50,000 in bras. That is a lot of bras. I did not know where was such a black market for boot legged bras.
