TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A U.S. Border Patrol agent in Tucson has been arrested on suspicion of structuring bank transactions to evade reporting requirements.

Border Patrol officials announced Tuesday that Raimundo Borjas was taken into custody on March 22 and has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation.

They didn't speculate on how he got the money.

Authorities say Borjas deposited more than $61,000 in cash in nine transactions between last Aug. 15 and Oct. 5 at a Douglas credit union.

They say all of the deposits were for less than $10,000 to allegedly avoid federal reporting requirements and most of the money was in $100 bills.

Authorities say much of the cash was mutilated with fraying, holes and dirt on the bills.

Borjas has been an agent since 2003.
