Border Police officers arrested a Palestinian suspect at the Kiosk checkpoint in Abu Dis for holding funds intended to finance terrorist activities Sunday overnight, according to a statement by the Police Spokesperson.

The soldiers apprehended the vehicle and arrested the suspicious driver and another girl who was in the passenger seat.
The cash, totaling NIS 4,757 was discovered while searching the vehicle. In addition, police found a stolen chip and checks, which equaled NIS 17,025. The girl who was traveling in the vehicle held an additional NIS 44,140 in cash. 

The suspect, a resident of Hebron in his 30s, was taken into custody for questioning. The girl was released on the scene.
