By KRWG News
El Paso – Workers fixing broken pipes in an El Paso home after a cold snap came upon some cool cash.
The El Paso Times reported Thursday that the total recovered could be nearly $1 million.
The Drug Enforcement Administration referred questions to El Paso police.
Police spokesman Darrel Petry on Wednesday only confirmed a "large sum" of money was found in the wall of a condominium. Further details on the discovered cash were not immediately released.
El Paso County District Attorney Jaime Esparza says the case is under investigation.
