BOSTON (WHDH) - Transportation Security Administration officers at Logan Airport found $10,000 stashed inside a slow cooker on Thursday morning, officials said.

Officers stopped a passenger who was in possession of the countertop cooking appliance and found money hidden inside, according to TSA New England spokesman Dan Velez.

“Not sure why the passenger decided to hide money in a slow cooker but Massachusetts State Police eventually cleared the passenger and the money,” Velez said.

Velez noted that it’s not uncommon for agents to detect bulk currency. However, this discovery was by far the most unusual.

“It’s mostly found in towels, shoes, and briefcases,” Telez said. “Never seen it stashed inside of a slow cooker.”

The passenger who was caught with the money missed her flight but she was allowed to rebook.
