Customs officers at O'Hare Airport found more than $125,000 in cash a family was trying to take out of the country during a random search.

The family was heading to Pakistan and had declared they were carrying $17,000.

During a search, an officer found large amounts of cash in several locations, including magazines, concealed behind photos, and in a pair of children's pants.

It is not illegal to carry cash in or out of the country, but the money was confiscated because it was not declared.
